I am swapping the struts and sway bar links on a 2006 Toyota Sienna AWD.
I got the first strut in place and started to put the sway bar link on but it does not want to line up with the mounting hole on the new strut. It looks like the link is about 2 inches too long, but I compared with the old link and they are the same length.
Does the car need to be level before this lines up? Or should I put the wheel back on and take the van off the jack / jack stand for this to line up?
What is the correct procedure?
