Where does the stabbling busch fits on the ford 1996

Do you mean the "Stabiliser bush"?
If so, then most cars have a front stabiliser or antirollbar fitted to the front subframe and attached to the front radius arms by links with bonded rubber bushes in. Some cars have a rear system as well working in the same manner as the front.
The only way to know whats worn, is to run it up on ramps in your drive, get down and dirty, and check the supports and bar ends for a worn bush. If this repair isn't within your skills then farm it out to a good DIY or garage.

What r problems to be on the look out for on a 1999 chevy malibu with the 3100 v6 in it and there is a rattle when i hit bumps or rough road the struts are fine

Broken stabalizer links, broken stabilizer bar, and worn out stabilizer bar bushings are fairly common. As well as the rear bushings on the front lower control arms. A quick inspection of the front end and you should be able to tell if the links are bad, bar is broken, or the lower control arm bushings are separated. If the rear bushings on the front lower control arms are seperated the lower control arm will look like it is resting on the subframe.

Steering wheel has play in seems like its coming from the column.

Check to make sure the intermediate shaft (the u-joint at the bottom of the column) is not cracked or worn, and that the pinch bolts are tightened.

Check to make sure the busings that secure the rack to the subframe are not worn out.

Check to make sure that the subframe bolts are all there, that the washers are there, and that the subframe bushings are not worn out (chunks missing and nasty greasy is a bad sign).

Check to make sure the tie rod ends are not worn out.

Check to make sure the lower control arm bushing is not worn out.

Check your front tire pressures.

What is the bar or rod called that is on the drivers side hooked to the lower controll arm and goes towards the front it has bushings in it were it connects to the lower controll arm- thoes bushings are...

The rods that connect the K-member (subframe) to the lower control arms are called "strut rods". Your local auto parts store should carry the bushings.

How do i change the subframe bushes on my jaguar xj6

I am assuming you mean the rear ones! you neeed to jack up and support the car, as you will be moving the rear subframe support the car on the forward end of the large arms that go to the floor (it is allways solid there) depending on the make and condition of the exhaust you might get away without disconnecting too much of it. support the subframe centrally with a jack, unbolt the 4 nuts and bolts that hold the mount to the subframe, lower the subframe enough to unbolt and change the rubber mounts, if the exhaust or brake flexy stop it dropping enough to change the mounts disconnect them, refit and tighten.

My mechanic told me that the bushings that hold up the subframe are showing signs of cracking. He said that since the steering column is attached I would lose control if the bushings broke. Is it possible...

It is highly unlikely that the bushings will fail. They do tend to crack alittle, but the bolts will still hold the subframe on. Now if they are rusted out, this is a possibility. You do have 4 bushings holding the subframe on also. 2 at the front, and 2 at the back.
