If it's the actual stabilizer bar....remove both stabilizer end links at the top and both frame mounts (4 bolts), remove old stabilizer bar and replace.

SOURCE: How to replace '96 Ford Explorer driver side exterior door handle

You will need to remove the door panel to gain access to the handle. Roll the window up or down as needed to get to the nuts that attach the handle to the door. You will also need to remove a rod the goes to the door lock. You will see the rod after the door panel is removed. Good luck.

SOURCE: replacing front driver side (F150) brake line (rubber hose)

Brake fluid is highly corrosive. If you can't get the line loose on the frame side then I would suggest replacing the hard line as well coming from the master cylinder. Or if you have a flaring tool you could cut the hard line just behind the rubber and put a new fitting on it. Pretty easy if you have the tool. Essentially you will wind up kinking or breaking the hard line anyway if the fitting won't come loose easy.

Tailgate latches wont function


I had a similar problem. Rust can be a pain in the ***! It might be best to hit the junkyards for a replacement ! Then spray the hell out of it with rust inhibitor. The one you have probably has bent control rods, broken springs and bent or cracked latches. I had the '95 F150 with extended cab...it rusted so badly it was dropping parts all over the road just before I dumped it last year.

Truck wanders! new trailing arm bushings,allignment. balljoints are tight.


Even if the ball joints are tight and no or little play if they are still the factory seeled ones the are probabley dry and that causes them to wander or another thing that would help is add a steering stabilizer shock on the front end or if it has one replace it but balljoints are the likely cause.

Ball joints


first of all you will need a balljoint press and a hub nut socket then you just have to remove the lockout and hub to pull out the axle to get to the ball joint and you alway replace upper and lower at the same time.
