How to use the Tool
First, you have to print the tool out. Believe it or not, this is the most complicated part. Make sure that there is NO SCALING or ZOOMING when you print out the tool. Otherwise, the measurements will be off. Once you print out the tool, take a pair of scissors and cut out the tool. Wrap the tool around the bar and match the starting line with the size line. The measurement on the right of the line will be your sway bar size.
