Drilling into A-frame

I picked up my 2016 2306 at the weekend and I want to fit a friction sway bar to the A-frame. This means drilling 4 holes for the self-tapping bolts - will the warranty be ok? Anything else I need to know before ?

If it's a tubular-type frame as on the Solera I would be a little nervous as that
"could" be a point for a future tear or fracture, esp. if done near the middle or a high-stress area...dunno? They did not design it to have little chunks of this
frame missing or drilled out? Making sure the frame is an iron alloy(test with a magnet) vs. aluminum(???) I would be prone to welding vs. drilling. If done
right it could add to the strength and not possibly take away? Just
speculating here safe and check!

PS: maybe it's ok as long as you don't go over the "holes drilled #" quota?? ;]

I wouldn't worry about it. That's how the dealer mounted mine.
