I am trying to install a sway bar that goes around the rear end of a 77 nova. I got a box of parts, a bar, clamps, and bushings. Can't tell which ends up with the sheet that came with it.

HOW MUCH IS TO FIX A BROKEN REAR SWAY BAR?


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.

Safety says i need sway bar bushings.what and where are these?


the sway bar is a bar that runs acrossed the front of the van from strut to strut. It is bolted to the cradel and then has links that run from the bar to the strut to increase stability. The sway bar bushings are rubber mounts that hold the bar down to the cradel. The bar runs though the mounts one each side where the bar and the cradel meet. If they are wore out you will normally hear a clucking noise from the front end when you hit bumps. To remove and replace them there is two bolts that hold a steel cap on top of them on each side. Remove the cap from both sides then the rubber mounts will have a split in them so you can get them off the bar. To install them is just the reverse of the removal. Good luck! 4 thumbs up is appeciated if this helps.

Broken rear sway bar


Unbolt the sway bar end links, then the two bushing clamps on the frame. It will come down so you can replace it. Never try to repair it

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.

Install rear sway bar


a sway bar is usually u shaped and hooks to the body and the tops of the u hook to the axle with links that have bushings. most jeeps dont have a rear sway bar.the panhard bar is the rod that goes from one side of the axle to the body on the opposite side. its sometimes mistakenly called sway bar. it keeps the body from moving side to side around corners. then there are the torque bars they keep the axle from trying to rotate when accelerating.
none of this would be real expensive but if its been lifted a bunch then you may have problems

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.

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.

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.

Swaying


Before you upgrade parts like a rear sway, how many miles on the vehicle?
Have the shocks and struts ever been replaced?
What is the condition of the existing sway bar bushings?

If these parts haven't been replaced recently, I would start there. You can also upgrade these parts with better components then stock (like gas shocks, upgrade bushings etc).

Also air pressure in your tires. Just being a couple of pounds off can effect the handling of a vehicle, same goes for condition of the tires, and even what brand of tire you use.

Rattle under car going over bumps


Take a close look at your springs. My 99 Audi A4 had a creaking rattle that happened when I went over a speed bump or dip in the road, and it turned out the bottom of each rear spring was broken. I replaced them and the noise went away.

Another possibility would be the sway bar end links. Since the sway bar is worked pretty hard, the bushings in the end links will wear out eventually. This can cause some clanking. Look behind the wheel hubs - you should see a short bar or bracket attached to the hub at one end, and to a bar at the other end. The bar will go forward or back a short way, and then across the bottom of the car to the other wheel hub. That's your sway bar. The bushings in the end links (the short attachment bars that anchor it to the wheel hub) or in the body brackets (some cars bold the center of the sway bar to the body with a bushing in a bracket) could be deteriorated and allowing the bar to bang around on the body.

Finally, take a look at the suspension itself. Do any of the bushings where various parts meet appear to be cracked, leaking fluid, or gone entirely? There should be no gaps between any suspension pieces at the points where they meet. If there are, you're missing some bushings and may well have found the source of your noise.
