I had the SR Performance Sway Bar Kit (front & rear) purchased from AM installed by a local automobile service shop to my 2013 V6 coupe. Months later I started to hear louder compression and popping noise from the front end. I took it to a local Ford dealership since the vehicle is still under the 3 year/36K factory warranty. they informed me the front control arm boots had dried out significantly due to the fact the associated heat shields were missing. I want to know if the heat shields need to be removed to install the SR Performance Sway Bar Kit and can then be reinstalled? Thanks for your time and reply.
