Unhappy Need help

i have the fsd/prokit setup with UUC sways, and it appears that the sways are pushing the springs up, therefore not allowing them to settle, so it doesnt look like i lowered my car at all. then, the sways broke my front left sway bar end link. i measured it and it appeared that i needed shorter end links, so i got ones from a e36 M3, which were the right length. now, it looks like my car is lowered on one side and raised on the other. keeping in mind that using another cars end links may not have been the best solution, what can i do now? i thought about just disconnecting the sways all together, as i dont drive it all that hard, but i paid for them. id like to make this work, and i cant be the only one who uses both products. please help me

im thinking i didnt. i dont know what else i can do though. i removed the end links. is it possible that the front spring could be loose, basically allowing it to extend further than it should?

Sounds like you need to get some adjustable endlinks, http://www.velocitymotorcars.com/adj...s-e85-e86.html for example.
And don't drive around like that or you might mess up the sway bar.
