You can do that in the ground but it is easier to have a jack handy to get the bolts to align back in the chassis by changing vehicle loading on bar. No special stuff I know of...

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.

2002 Chevy Trail Blazer. Loud pop sometimes in rear when turning. Noticed sway bar is loose, bushings worn out . Could that make the pop noise or is problem possibl worse?


sway bar bushing could be problem. I would replace it before trying anything else and yes that will cause it to pop from time to time. In some cases if not replaced in time the bar itself could break

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 to replace a sway bar end links to a 94 intrepid



REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

The rear suspension on LH platform vehicles is a fully independent suspension. A stabilizer bar (also called a sway bar) is mounted in rubber isolator bushings and connects the rear struts through links. Note that the fuel tank must be removed to remove the stabilizer bar.

CAUTION OFF. The fuel system pressure must be relieved before disconnecting any fuel lines. Failure to do so may result in fire and/or personal injury.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Relieve the fuel system pressure.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Remove both rear wheels.

  1. Position a transmission jack under the fuel tank just forward of the crossmember to help support the fuel tank when crossmember is removed.
  2. Remove the four crossmember to frame rail attaching bolts. Remove the fuel tank.
  3. Remove the stabilizer bar to link assembly attaching nuts and remove the bar and isolator bushings as an assembly from the vehicle. Inspect the isolator bushings for damage or excessive wear and replace, if necessary.

To install:
  1. Inspect for broken or distorted retainers and bushings. If bushing replacement is required, replacement bushings can be installed by locating the split in the bushing, prying open and removing the defective bushing from around the stabilizer bar.
  2. Install the stabilizer bar and isolator bushings back into the vehicle as an assembly making sure bar is centered in vehicle so it doesn't contact other suspension components.
  3. Install stabilizer bar attaching link onto stabilizer bar. Install new link to bar attaching nuts and tighten to 70 ft. lbs. (95 Nm).

Replace the sway bar bracket bolt with new after loosening or removing them. Only use original equipment bolts as replacements.
  1. Install the fuel tank back onto the vehicle.
  2. Position the crossmember on frame rails and install four mounting bolts. Tighten attaching bolts to 70 ft. lbs. (95 Nm).
  3. Remove transmission jack from under the fuel tank.
  4. Install the rear wheels and lug nuts. Tighten the lug nuts, in a star pattern sequence, to 95-100 ft. lbs. (129-135 Nm).
  5. Lower the vehicle. Reconnect the negative battery cable.
  6. Pressurize the fuel system and check for leaks.
  7. Check and reset the rear wheel toe to specifications as required.
