ive recently purchased a sway bar link kit and installed it to what the specs said but it was to loose and i could hear the washers rattling so i did the nuts up a bit tighter and now im getting a knocking noise whenever i go over bumps or the car rolls from side to side im confused is it normal to make this noise?

I was told you should leave the two upper washers (the curved ones) off as they hit against the mounts. Unfortunately I had already thrown my old ones away so couldn't check to see if they were the same size or not...
