How do the sway bar links and tie rods relate? Or are they completely different?


A sway bar is mounted on the chassis and most times connected to the bottom control arm on the front. They control the roll of the vehicle when cornering.
A tie rod is the bar that goes between the steering rack or drag link and the steering arm. Tie rods are a part of the steering, all cars have tie rods while not all cars have sway bars.

I'm hoping I can replace & take care of it myself on my '02 Monte Carlo 3400.. Not sure which bar it is, but it's front driver's side, bar is broken off that looks like it should be attached to th


Front sway bar link, or tir rod end. The tie rod end moves the tire with the steering wheel.
The sway bar link helps keep the car stable around corners. And is normally a long bolt with washers and bushings running threw a long bar that connects the passenger side to driver side.

Bumping noise when you are braking


Check the wheel bearings,brake calipers, brake pads, tie-rods, ball-joints, and the other related steering components, anti-sway bar links, and shocks.

I hit a pothole and broke some sort of bar that goes to the left front of my car.Is it a sway bar or tie rod or what please?


can you turn the wheels still? if you can then its not a tie rod. more than likely it is the sway bar for body roll of the car. goto auto zone or O'reilly auto parts to get the right fix.

What is it called? bar from strut to stabilizer arm?


If on the front end, you will have the spring, with the strut coming down in the center, then you will have a sway bar with a thin rod that connects to the arm, then you will have a small rod coming straight out with a boot and nut on the end at a 90deg angle, and that will be the tie rod and tie rod end. And in the center of the wheel will be your axle, I hope I described what you are looking for. Good luck

Need to replace steering arm on pass side on 1998


Your description leads me to believe that the spindle is bent. This is the piece that the tie rod attaches to near the wheel. Sometimes the tie rod is attached to a piece that attaches to the spindle which is rather intuitive. Just remove the tie rod end, unbolt the arm that attaches to the spindle and replace the arm. In this case the only special tool you'll need is a tie rod seperator.

If the arm is a part of the spindle and cannot be removed easily:

1) Put vehicle in park and safety brake on - chock the rear wheels
2) Lift passenger side front wheel and put on jack stands
3) Remove wheel and have a friend apply brake pressure
4) Loosen hub nut with appropriate socket (22 to 35mm)
You can purchase the socket from your local auto parts store
You'll need a large breaker bar, its torqued to about 100ft-lbs
5) Remove tie rod end with a tie rod/ball joint separator
This can also be purchased at your local auto parts store.
Some spindles are made with tie rod end permanantly attached
If it is removable, remove nut and drive the separator tool
between the tie rod and spindle using a large hammer.
It'll eventually break free from the spindle.
6) Remove the strut with a strut spring compressor tool
WARNING - THIS IS VERY DANGEROUS
This can be purchased at your local auto parts store.
Compress spring before removing lower bolts (2 of them).
The strut may be left on vehicle but the spring must be
compressed.
7) Remove caliper and break assembly
Loosen the two slide bolts that go through the caliper assembly
Remove caliper and breaks - let it hang by the tubing
8) Detach upper and lower ball joints with seperator tool as in #5
9) Finally remove the hub nut from #4
The spindle should slide off the axle
10) Repair or replace the spindle and put it all back together in
reverse order using new wheel bearings. Pack them with axle
grease if theyr'e not the sealed type.

NOTE: The tie rod end may need to be replaced also. The vehicle will need a front end allignment. Be sure to torque the hub nut to the manufacturers specifications - at least 75ft-lbs. You should probably replace the wheel bearings.
