ok i got my sway bar and went to install it but since im mechanicly challanged .. i put everything together right, but i started tightening everything before i scrwed the right link to the bar so after everythin was tightened i had to force the right link to the bar. would it make any harm ?
hope it made sence its kind of hard to explain.

I did the write up DIY for the new hellwig
I don't understand your question but I can't think of any way you could hurt it during the install unless you stripped the nuts or something. If you can be a little more specific maybe I can help

I think what you're saying is that you installed and tightened everything except that right end link and then forced and tightened that last end link...Is that correct?
My guess is that it should be fine unless you used some mechanical device to line it up which might bend something. I agree with the previous poster that there is a chance you could have messed up the threads on the bolt but if you were able to screw it on without straining too much then it should be fine.
I don't know about the gen1 tundra ( Mine was installed on a 2007 ) but the end links had lock nuts so they were harder to tighten. ( just an fyi )

You are probably OK as the bushings can flex up to 5 deg off centerline.
