You are correct. all you have to do is take the old one off and put the new one on. the only hard part may be the nuts on the links may turn the whole link and not come off. you will need either a 12 or 14 mm for the nut and a hex key or socket to hold the stud.shouldnt be to hard

Well as long as you observe how everthing comes apart it should not be too difficult the hardest part is removing the old parts a lot of times the nuts and bolts are frozen from rust and need considerable force to be removed, this means either snapping off the bolts with a 1/2 inch drive socket wrench by turning the nuts or bolts until they snap or using a portable propane torch to heat the nut or bolts to the point that they start to turn.

Torsion Bars

No, your Honda does not have "torsion bars". You have a coil springs to absorb bumps and give the suspension compliance. A torsion bar was used on many Chrysler products and older vehicles. You may be confusing "torsion" bars with "sway" bars. A sway bar links suspension from side to side to keep the vehicle "flatter" in corners as an aid to handling.

Clunking noise from the rear when passing roads that are uneven or ha pot holes.

Accord rear suspension has a sway bar. Maybe one of the supports became loose, and there is play in the system. Either that or any of the suspension bars became loose, OR LOST a bushing or part of it. Best thing to do is take it to any shop, have raised, and inspect the rear suspension for play and bushings.Never get under the car if it is raised on a make shift stand or car jack.

NO, this is dangerous, it will cause the car to be unstable, especially with any weight in it. Call a repair mechanic please. if you need to drive it only drive it a garage round the corner. please take this advice.

Broken rear sway bar? Were we doing some rock crawling? You can order them online for around $150, and very simple to replace. Shop around to have someone put one in for you, as this is a very simple job and takes maybe 30 minutes to do. One thing to keep in mind, your swaybar end links may need to be replaced also while they are in there. Also the rear swaybar bushings may need to be replaced also. Endlinks are about $37 ea for Moogs. Bushings are around $8 for both sides.

How do i replace the coil springs on a 2006 honda accord

Front are McPherson strut and you need highly specialised tools to change,plus they're under compression and if you are not experienced DON'T try to service them.Any brake-shock shop will change them out quickly and safely.The rear ones can be easily replaced with a floor jack and some common hand tools.Block the front tires(front and back of tire),jack car on the jack pad in front of the tire your going to change the spring.Remove the bottom shock bolt,this will allow the control arm to drop enough to pull out your old spring.Some times you need to unhook the sway bar to get added clearance.Replace the new spring making note of the original springs orientation.

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.
