2007 Sway bar issues

I have a '07 Z1 and the sway bar has lost one of the nylon bushings, I replaced with longer ones that I ade. Now, I've lost the sway bar link, and the other came off but stayed on sway bar. Has anyone come across this and have remedies? Thanks!

When I got my 2007 Z1 it was also losing the plastic things on the sway bar. The dealer ordered a new updated swaybar for it and I haven't lost any more plastic things off the sway bar.

I have 2 07's. One is a EB and it lost the ends a few times. I finally ordered a 08 bar with the keepers that bolt on to the a-arms. The 08 does not have the plastic ends.
No problems now. My other 07 has been fine.

Part 3 and 5 from 08 model

Two things that I found on the 07 Jag and F-1000 that use the same sway bar. On my Jag I last one of the ends as they worked off. I ended up making them out of delrin and drilled a hole through and put a 1/16 SS pin in them. I have a friend that had me work on his F10 and I got into it a little more as he was having the the sockets on the A arm falling off. What I found was the bar was bent to much and when it was at its full travel it would allow the support end to come off. I used a press and put about two inches overall into the distance from end to end and as not had a problem in three years and 5000 miles.

So in closing there are two different problems, the round ends coming off or the end mounts coming off first...

And yes the upgrade to the 08 works but cost more.....

I just used the existing parts and its worked great.
I did try using set screws to no avail. One sleeve would always back out.
Other than that my 07 's are awesome

thanks!

Thanks for the info. seems like last year, I had decided to go with the newer '08-09 links and forgot about it. I was thinking of tapping the holes on the stud (on the A-arm) and putting an extension on it with a washer to keep them from sliding off. Being a machinist, I'm always looking for the cheapest, easiest fix. But putting the links with smaller holes in them seems to be the best option.

Yes drill and tap the stud, as you said. The EBs were threaded, but the production ones were not. Once the sleeves fell off mine, I put on the 08 links/keepers, and it's been good for thousands of miles
