Plus, that sway bar mount is not designed to carry the weight of the car. You could damage it.

What are you planning in doing? You could put it under the control arm.

Ya know, a friend pick up a whole car lift like the drive up on ones for a grand. The only down fall is its not ran by hydralic pumps but instead you use a 3 ton jack to lift it.
