my rear shocks were creaking badly so i slid under the truck to take a look and found out the sway bar links arent there! no wonder every turn feels like the cars about to flip. rear suspension never gave me any trouble until this winter so i never had to check them out before. the sway bushings look new and unstressed so im guessing the truck came this way or the dealer took them off and never put them back on at some point. hmm what good is a sway bar thats not even attached. this car has been serviced at the dealer since we drove off the lot. this is pretty ridiculous, what else could they have left out? i suggest those who have 02 320's check out the rears. any chance of damage done by these missing parts? thanks for reading[xx(]

I cant think of any damage being done but I wonder if there was excessive wear on the other parts.

Any decent renewal of this part should include an inspection of the other components. A shock test usually needs a specific shock testing rig.
