grin L8ton Sway Bar Question

I attempted installation today on my newly received 11/16" L8ton Sway bar. Everything went OK until I went to attach the clamp with the two bolts on the right side of the machine. To my surprise there was an odd shaped heavy duty black wire device on the ground. I know I unbolted the bottom of the original fixture and this was attached to it. I have tried to find where the other end goes. Looked at all the installation instruction on the website and in the service manual but never could find exactly where the other end goes. It has a small loop on one which could mean a wire goes into it but could not find any such wire. That loop is so tight that I can imagine a wire going into it. After spending an inordinate amount of time and battling bruises and cuts, I had no luck. My hands will not go into those tight places. Man-oh-man do I need some help.
Any pictures or videos or some heart-felt prayers would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Sid

I have no pictures and the manual is not much help. But what I believe your talking about is a heavy steel piece not really a wire. And this is just a guide for the e-brake cable. As I recall it goes in the bottom bolt hole and just wraps around the cable. I deleted my e-brake awhile back.

Sid,

When I 1st seen your post I knew what you were talking about. And I went out and looked at my quad, and was like wtf? Then it hit me all at once, that I removed all that when I did the brake block off kit. So I posted the 1st reply. And then I was like wait I do have the part it's just in a box, and I was able to retrieve the part and take a picture. And I just removed my e-brake assemble last April, lol. I hope you get this back together okay, if not maybe someone with the assembly installed can post a photo.

does the sway bar make the 700xx act more like a straight axle quad?
