Can't tell how it should go. 

 

Royal PITA to get installed in there. Especially with the AC compressor in there.

I just took a look at mine, car sitting on the ground, the ends are parallel with the frame, and the middle/front is angled down.

 

The other thing to watch out for is the metal washers on the end links, I had to grind mine down on the sides so they wouldn't hit the sides of the control arm.

Installing the 22mm sway bar is a real PITA.  I had to force mine in between the front sheet metal and the suspension bits behind, with the help of a small pinch bar.  And even intstalled I can't get a finger between the bar and the bottom edge of the nose panel.  But it never hits...use urethane bushings for both end links and mounts--much more effective than rubber and won't affect ride.

It's a tight fit, Angled front of bar should face down
