Default Cobb Rear Sway bar help

Recently installed a used Rear Sway bar a week ago and was a bit concerned with a few things.
Emailed customer service last week but still no response. Called them but they told me to send them an email...

1) Did I installed these correctly? (Despite the upside down logo)





Note how the ends curve on this stock photo

2) Is this bracket still good to use? There's a minor crack at the weld on the right





3) Bushings looks worn, does anyone know where I can find replacement (1.25 or 32mm) bushings?

Found some Energy Suspension bushings but they don't seems like they're able to handle the abuse


Thanks!

That's got to be the correct way or it would hit. The decal must be flipped. If it were me I'd get a new bracket. JBR has them with bushings. It doesn't look like COBB sells any of their own suspension stuff anymore.

Doesn't JBR make some heavy duty sway bar brackets that are really close to the right size?

Just an FYI, your photos are missing some bolts (and brackets) :-)

I have the same rear sway bar (but my COBB is right side up) it looks fine just get the bracket wielded. And grease the snot out of the bushings.
