My car is a 1990 SM, with the double loop bottom bracket for attachment of the bottome end of the sway bar end link attachment. The end bolt of my adustable end link is too short to go through both holes in the horizontal attachment bracket on the right rear axle, so is it safe to just attach it to ONE side of the bracket? By attaching it to the front hole of the double loop bracket, the locking nut will be between the two holes in the attachment bracket. The later model attachment brackets only have one hole. Thanks!

the later style is thicker to handle the load with only one bracket -- I would get a longer bolt and fab spacers if the rod end is narrower than the bracket

Reggie,

If your adj sway bar endlinks are from MiataCage, for some reason it has been a common problem that their provided Cotter-pin bolts are TOO F*&@$in' SHORT!

Unbelievable that they are still shipping that product with that defect.

I ended up having to fabricate my own bolt.
