Rear sway bar bracket question

Need some advice. Installed my Whiteline Rear Swaybar which did not include new brackets. Managed to get every bolt in and torqued to spec except for the two circled in red. Was unable to get them in as whenever those ones went in the rest would not align. Would it be a big issue to leave those bolts out?

Yeah, dont leave out any fasteners. They are there for good reason.

Somehow when installing this RSB, you have possibly fastened the endlinks prior to fastening the main support fasteners? You likely have the bar loaded-up so that installing the main support fasteners is out of position?

Actually haven't put on my end links yet. Will try taking out the bolt that is facing the front of the car then do the fastener in red with the others facing the rear still attached.
