It will allow extra sway which will alter your handling in the near future and in time will do damage to the rest of the suspension.

How hard is it to replace the front sway bar bushings on my 04 camry se


Here are general instructions for replacing this part.
Instructions
    • 1Park the vehicle on a paved level surface. Apply the parking brake and release the hood latch. Place a wheel chock behind of the rear tires and open the hood of the vehicle. This will help to allow some light down into the engine compartment for you when you're underneath it.
    • 2Lift the left front quarter of the vehicle with the floor jack and place a jack stand in a safe and secure location. A front frame rail would be ideal if applicable. Repeat this step for the right front quarter to elevate the front axle.
    • 3. Put on the safety glasses, grab the tools, replacement bushings, and creeper and crawl under the front of the vehicle.
    • 4Locate the sway bar bushings by following the sway bar from the links behind the front tire(s) to where it is mounted to the undercarriage of the car by a bracket. In some vehicles, it may be necessary to remove heat shield, brackets or other components to obtain access to the sway bar brackets for removal. If this is the case, remove anything to help you gain access. The brackets are mounted by one or two bolts. Sometimes the bolt may be steadied with a nut or sometimes it may be screwed into a fixed threaded hole in the undercarriage. Remove the bolts using the ratchet, socket and hand wrench if necessary. One bolt sway bar brackets will have a hinged top or bottom that you'd swing away once the single bolt was extracted.
    • 5Slide the old bushing along the sway bar to a location that's easy for you to extract it from the sway bar. Pry the slotted opening of the bushing using the pry bar to convince it off of the sway bar. The bushing are generally a rubber coated steel bushing so they're going to come off stubbornly. Place the new bushing onto the sway bar in the same fashion. Since they're new, they're going to be even more stubborn than the old one(s).
    • 6Position the bushing back in the correct location on the sway bar and replace the brackets. Tighten with the ratchet, socket and hand wrench as necessary.
    • 7Replace any components that you may have had to remove. Collect all the tools and debris from under the vehicle and crawl out. Lower the vehicle, close the hood, and remove the wheel chock.

Solid bar in front end, two bushings on either side of front tires is this the sway bar?


if you are talking about the sway bar end links. you can replace them yourself to save a few bucks. first Raise the front of the vehicle with a hydraulic jack. Place jack stands under the frame on each side of the vehicle. Lower the hydraulic jack so that the weight of the vehicle is supported by the jack stands and the front wheels are off the ground. locate the sway bar end links on either side of the front sway bar. Remove the bolts from each end of the sway bar end link. replace the bushings in the same order you take them off. you can go to any auto parts store and buy end links for your car.

How do you replace sway bars on a 1995 olds 88 royale?


you will need to disconnect the sway bar from the sway bar links(in most cases you might as well replace the links as well since they may snap while trying to remove them). You will then remove the sway bar bushing caps 2 bolts on each of the 2 caps and lower the sway bar. Is the bar cracked? should not require replacing if it isn't cracked. the rubber bushings and links do wear over time and yes the bar can crack.

Safety says i need sway bar bushings.what and where are these?


the sway bar is a bar that runs acrossed the front of the van from strut to strut. It is bolted to the cradel and then has links that run from the bar to the strut to increase stability. The sway bar bushings are rubber mounts that hold the bar down to the cradel. The bar runs though the mounts one each side where the bar and the cradel meet. If they are wore out you will normally hear a clucking noise from the front end when you hit bumps. To remove and replace them there is two bolts that hold a steel cap on top of them on each side. Remove the cap from both sides then the rubber mounts will have a split in them so you can get them off the bar. To install them is just the reverse of the removal. Good luck! 4 thumbs up is appeciated if this helps.

2003 Saturn Ion vibration begins at about 60 mph. Tires are good and in balance and show no signs of uneven wear. Had tires rotated as well to see if problem changed, it did not. Had local mechanic put...


Try replacing the end links to the front sway bar. The sway bar end link bushings may be worn and needs to be replaced, buy the sway bar end link kit with the urethane bushing. They last a life time and cost about $45.00 for both sides at Parts Source or Auto Zone and takes you less then 30 min to repalce both sides. Good Luck and keep me posted. Worn bushing to the sway bar, shocks and steering component will cause vibrations out on the highway.

Front sway bar link kit, what is the order of installation. all my bushings are rotted away.


Remove the sway bar links from lower control arms. Replace the sway bar mount to frame bushings first. Then install sway bar link bushings. Note how they come apart and install in the same manner.

How do i find a diagram showing my front end sway bar bushings?


The sway bar bushings are under the large clamps that hold the bar to the frame. The ends of the sway bar are connected to the struts by the sway bar links. When the links wear out, they clunk--not squeak. The bushings are under the retainer in the pic below.

besides changing the bushings, did you check the sway bar itself or the degree of the linkage bolts, in time seeing as it's 16 years old now it may have been stressed and bent, buying smaller linkage bolts with stiffer bushings may help tremendously...worst case scenerio you may have to replace the sway bar itself.
