We are missing the bolts that go through the "swaybar?" into the a arms on both sides. We cannot find anyone who carries these and we arent sure what they are called. We tried to find a diagram of the front end to find the proper name but cant find that either. We have a lenos daewoo 1999. Any help?

could be rear wheel bearings - they come as a complete assy with brake hub - approx $45 each side - 1 hour per side for replacement. Also replace the rear sway bar links $8 for a set - other than that you could have a bent wheel and or loose rear control arm bolts - remove the rear wheels and check all mounting bolts - I had this problem and my rear end felt like it was shimming when I went around corners - 5 minute fix

1.go to AutoZone get new linkage bars or just the bushings depends on wether the bar has grooves wore into them from use and new nuts. 2. Raise and safely support vehicle,3. remove tire, 4.using floor jack safely support the lower suspension arm and raise to remove pressure on the linkage bar between swaybar end and lower arm 5. remove the nut under the lower suspension arm that retains the swaybar linkage ,6. loosen and remove nut at swaybar end. 7.at this time only lower the lower suspension arm enough to remove the linkage bar. install new bushings or bar to the swaybar end don't completely tighten nut at this time.8. install new lower bushing then jack the lower suspension arm back up aligning the lower end of the linkage with the hole in the arm once pressure is lifting the swaybar install the lower nut and tighten at this time Torque top nut to35-47 Ft lb and bottom nut 8-10- Ft lb lower the jack from under the lower arm and install tire lower vehicle ready to go Appx 1 Hr per side
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
Sounds like a control arm or possibly the rear swaybar is loose. Pull the tire and check things out - you should basically have no play in any of the ball joints or linkages. If you do and it's on a ball joint, the joint should be replaced. If the swaybar is the culprit, you can replace the end link (from the bar to the wheel hub) independently - you don't have to buy a full sway bar setup.
you need to remove at least the rear bolts of the subframe and unbolt the steering rack, rear engine mount and sway bar links. It would also be helpful to support the engine and transmission. It's a very awkward job even on a lift
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.
