How to Change a Sway Bar Link?


It's not to hard should only be 2 bolts on each link one on top and one on the bottom just remove one sway bar link at a time. The books may break off but that's fine you don't need them old bolts any way. Then just bolt the new one on that's all there is to it

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.

How tough is it to replace the rack and pinion on a pontiac montana


It's a bit of a pain, but doable with simple tools.

Loosen the front lug nuts. Jack up the van and support it on the rails just behind the front tires (not the sub frame as you need to lower that a few inches). Remove the front tires. Disconnect the sway bar link pins, and the sway bar mounting bolts. Disconnect the tie rod ends from the knuckles. Support the rear ends of the sub frame, and remove the bolts mounting it to the van. Once the sub frame bolts are out, lower the rear end of the frame. I did this by using a jack, and placing the jack stands a couple of inches below the frame. Remove the sway bar from the van. You may need to drop the rack a bit more, but be careful as the steering shaft is still connected. You should be able to get at the bolt that attaches the rack stub to the steering rod by pushing up on the boot. Remove the sub shaft bolt. Disconnect the power steering lines from the rack (at the rack). Un-bolt the rack from the sub frame, there are two bolts. The rack should be able to be removed from the drivers side of the van. I replaced the tie rod ends and the sway bar bushings when I replaced mine (new link pins are easy at this time too). The installation is reverse of removal. I measured the tie rod distances when I put the new ends on. The only change I made was that I tied the steering shaft boot down onto the rack so I could install the bolt. I couldn't push the boot up high enough to get the bolt back in. Be sure to install the new power steering line seals that should come with the rack (buy new ones if it doesn't) - the lines are different sizes so you can't mix them up. Torque everything to spec when reinstalling (the cheap Hanes manuals have what you need along with these directions!). It's easiest to install the sway bar brackets when the sub frame is hanging down. Once it's together and running, check the power steering fluid. Get an alignment immediately (I set mine up before I changed the rack).
One last bit of advice, buy the rack with the longer warranty, you don't want to do this twice.

How to replace rear sway bar links on a 1999 regal for knocking noise


First remove the tire on its corresponding side position of the side you are going to change.
the easiest way is to remove the pin and nut and that holds the spindle thing on top so you have some kind of slack to play with the sway bar link..then mark the thread of the all one how much deep is it where it connects to the sway bar so you put the one the same or you will need to take for aligment.
Next the remove the pin going through the nut opening...Then you will need to remove the nut that is facing down on the bolt of the sway bar link once the nut is out push the link bar up if it is to tight beat it with a hammer or a mallet from down the bolt to the top but before doing it make sure you got the right part you don't want to beat the all one up and have the wrong part..

Then just put new one in and the same way the old one was and everything should be good from there. Just put everything viceverse of how you started...

You should be good getting the spindle back in place may be hard if you can get someone to help you to push it is going to be lot more easier...'


Good luck. CR

Replacing sway bar. cannot get new sway bar to propper position. how do i get it to fit propperly?


Your old sway bar made of tubular steel. New sway bar made from solid steel. You have a frame under engine the sway bar attaches too. This frame also supports your engine and trans mounts. Follow frame and there are 4 bolts securing same. Mechanic I watched supported engine underneath. Loosen back bolts though not removed. (please note sway bar has arrow that bar can only go in one direction) This maybe your problem. Attach bar to frame and fitting's. Best if you raise front end and remove both tires. Good luck

2002 chry. Voyger has front end knocking noise when going over bumps.


Get someone to help you with this: Reach behind the front wheel just rearward of the strut and you'll find a vertical rod that bolts to the strut just below the spring perch and the other end goes to the sway bar. Hold it and get someone to rock the van as hard as they can. There's and astronomically good chance you'll feel a popping in this rod. If you do, you need to replace it. It's called a sway bar link. You'll need 2 of them and the sway bar bushings as well. Spray the nuts on the links down real good with wd40. Hold the back side with a pair of channel locks to keep the ball joints in them from turning. I take the top nuts off first, then the sway bar bushings so I can move that thing around to gain access to the bottom nuts. Then put them back in reverse order. Remember this, if you do it, no matter what anyone tells you, DO NOT lubricate the sway bar bushings. After the first rain, they'll start squeaking and they'll NEVER stop. They are supposed to go on dry.

A clunking noise in the rear


This is a very easy fix, as in most cases it is the rear sway bar rubber bushings. You can get new ones for about $25, and the install is fairly straightforward. 4 bolts. It is a little tricky geting the bolts back on due to the tension in the sway bar. It is helpful to have someone there to assist to aligning the sway bar correctly so you can put the bolts back in.
