LR your mechanic sadly is mistaken. Keep in mind these same parts are used on E350 ambulance cab/chassis which may place higher loads on the stabilizer than we'd see in normal everyday driving. There is no special drag link required, the U-bolt nuts are a prevailing thread design, much like a NyLok nut so they stay in place over time. Have no fear about using this system and it not needing anything but an occasional check time-to-time, just like everything else!
