Just now got a hold of this thread.  My brute force from a 6'2" 190
lb. frame was not cutting it at all when I redid my front end.  The
ride is an '86 5KCTSQ.  I coaxed the sway bar in by looping some heavy
braided nylon rope over the end of the sway bar and some other reasonable
point in line with the hole in the control arm.  I then twisted it
with a scredriver to pull it in.  I kept the rope from slipping down
by clamping a vise-grip on the sway bar.
