    Usually on one side of the bar, the mount is threaded so that you can adjust to make the bar longer or shorter (At least thats what it's like with my DC tie). In case of a used one, it might be locked up with rust or dirt, just use some WD40 to get it to move. The stock bolts at the top of the LCA are plenty long. Remove your two bolts for your contol arms, place the bar with mounting holes lined up, and just bolt it in. Very easy.

    An example:

    I have a feeling that the bar you're using is the wrong one. Are you absolutely positive that your Skunk2 bar is for an EG? I've never heard of one being so short....

    sounds like the wrong part.

    there is no hardware. you simply slide it under the LCA bolt and re-install the oem bolt.
