Hi there,

Jacking the body of the vehicle so the suspension extends lower can sometimes remedy this....Design flaw. If you do this, use jack stands to support the vehicle while beneath it

If not, disconnect the rear arms of the sway bar and let it swing down and out of the way. There should be no need to mess with the forward straps which will act as a hinge.

Best regards

We have a 2003 saturn vue tha sway bar broke , easy to disconnect, now we got a new sway bar . My question is how do we install the curvy sway bar back to its spot ?What part(s) may need taken off to get...


remove the 2 pivot points under the car on the chassis sub frame . Disconnect the rods at either end of the sway bar at the rubbers . I would get all new rubbers for the sway bar and pivots before reassembly. Sway bars normally do not break as they are spring steel so it may have been weak or rubbing on a pivot from a missing rubber

Rusty gas filter


You could do these yourself. But, you would need a good mechanical knowledge and a decent tool kit. The most difficult of these is the ball joints. Just because they are always fiddly. The fuel filter is either screw on or plug in. and the sway bar is dirty and awkward. Ideally you would use a car lift to do these jobs.

Oil pan is not clearing the sway bar and frame. How do i get the pa m completely off the car?


Where the sway bar meets the cradle the are two bolt that hold a sway bar bushing down on both sides. The bolts have a 15mm head on them. Remove the two on the driver side only they are easiest ones to get to. Once you have them out you should be able to push the sway bar back far enough to get the pan to drop.

How much to change a oil pan gasket for 2001 grand prix 3.8 gt


If you want to repair the oil pan I would also check lower engine mount for leaking oil and cracks in anti sway bar near fitting's. This due to engine mount is oil filled. OEM sway bar is made of tubular steel and they crack easy. Replacement sway bar is solid steel. Here's the kicker. When they pull the lower frame to service oil pan. The engine mount and sway bar are attached to that frame. A honest mechanic should only charge for parts ($35 for mount and $100 for sway bar) and maybe a extra hour. My mechanic did all in 5 hours. FYI gasket is only $35 bucks. Good luck

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

Trying to put sway bar bushings in the sway bar on 1991 chevrolet k5 or full size blazer where the sway bar bolts to the top of the spring pack and can not figure it out


ok you have me confused? Your sway bar should be attached to your frame and your "LOWER CONTROL ARMS" via sway bar bushings.

How do i find a diagram showing my front end sway bar bushings?


The sway bar bushings are under the large clamps that hold the bar to the frame. The ends of the sway bar are connected to the struts by the sway bar links. When the links wear out, they clunk--not squeak. The bushings are under the retainer in the pic below.
