You're Awesome thanks :like:
You got it, buddy! The lock washers are meant to act like spacers to prevent contact between the tie rod clamp and stabilizer mount. With loctite on the threads, I used a single flat washer to clear mine. The split washer just wanted to open up.

Glad you found the problem.
I assume it was the bolt that holds the stabilzer to the bar.

FWIW, I do not trust lock washers.
Research has shown that they really don't work, as shown in the links below.



The videos show how Nord Lock washer help. Typical examples are shown below:

The proper use of loctite does help.
Another option is safety wire.
