If you cant find it in that link, there is a chart in the manual on the torques. I am pretty sure there is a few threads on this to you should search for about the problem you are having. I would also check all the bolts dealing with the swaybar, sometimes bolts are missing or not tight from what I have read from factory. Since you are hearing that it would be a good time to go over your car anyways. Good luck let us know

Hey guys new to the forum here and I've got 5 hrs on my machine and it's making this same noise. I've checked out the front sway bar and it definitely moves side to side. I'm wondering if anyone has just completely disconnected or removed the front sway bar altogether? And if so how does it affect positively or negatively the ride of this machine?

A lot of us have removed the front sway bar. But we have also had our suspension done too, so that takes away from the body roll you'll get when removing the front sway bar. With it removed, you get more articulation, that's the main positive. Negative as mentioned body roll. It really depends on where you drive your car.

Thanks for the info! I live in the southeast and it's a lot of tight trails so I dont believe removing it would be bad for me. I removed the rear sway bar on my last SxS and loved it but I did always keep in the back of my mind that it was gone so that I didn't overdo it when traveling on roads between trails. I'm considering removing the front sway bar but maintaining the rear just so that the body roll is still maybe controlled somewhat.

Drive it first connected, then just unbolt a link. Same as taking it off. Then if you don't like the way it feels, just bolt back on. If you like the way it feels, get rid of it. Definitely leave the rear bar on your car.
