Pivot? Why do you want it to pivot?
Are you meaning it doesn't move when you want to line it back up and reattach after wheeling ?
Try a little lube on the non threaded part of the bolt when you put it in .
You mean the sway bar to frame bushings? If you tighten them too much you won't be able to swing the swaybar up after disconnecting it.
As for where the disconnect kit bolts to the spring plates, those should not be loose at all. Park the truck on level ground, make sure everything is hooked up and torque the large swaybar bolts to around 120 foot pounds. I don't think they are supposed to pivot. If they do pivot front to back then something else is loose, possibly your u-bolts.
The bolts shouldn't be loose at all , but they do need to be able to move themselves . You can move them flexing and then they won't line up after wheeling .
My bolts are tight as can be , but the part the swaybar attaches to can move for reassembly .
Exactly, the 2" tall pivots that bolt to the frame pads should move rotationally to allow for fore-aft movement with articulation. Mine lock up solid. I probably need to take a little material off one of the bushings and lube assy.
