Welcome to the forum!

What year is your Hellcat?
Are there any mods?

Comes loose? Where? At the bolts of the links or the bushings?

The brushings
Bushings. Brushes are in electric motors.

So there are four bolts. Check if they are tight. If tight, then are the bushings busted? Other than that, it is a pretty simple item.

Why do you think they are loose? Just because of a noise? Post a picture when they are loose please.

I had the left front sway bar bushing fail on a 2016 with 4K miles. Collar separated from the bushing. Was a horrible clunk as the collar would hit the frame under gear shift or acceleration. Replaced under warranty. The collar was fairly thin and very rusted (from transport - as it was a garage queen.

I remember somebody was having issues with the rib on the bar sliding through the bushing and causing the other side to contact the tire.
I would recommend polyurethane frame mount bushings for the bar. With grease fittings.
Like these with new brackets.

Somebody has to make them for our cars.
I know grand caravans had this issue as well.

BMR makes a sway bar and their bushings make the OEM unit’s look like they belong on a Caravan. These take care of that little problem. I have to clean and repack them a couple times per year, but no clunks!

True. Very true. And if it gets too dry or the cat boils it off, the noise from the little stick or whatever will make you think the thing is about to disintegrate! After it did that for a whole day at Road America last year, I proactively keep it happy. Just got it done with all my other winter maintenance/detailing,

I would drill a 1/8 hole through the bracket and a 1/16 hole halfway through the bushing. Take it apart, finish the 1/16 hole through the bushing. Tap the metal bracket with threads that fit a grease fitting and install one.
This is the grease I use on my polyurethane,
Clear super lube.

Agree that’s the stuff. I don’t mind cleaning and checking everything. The nut gun zips those four nuts off quick.
