Do you mean the sway bar in the front? or back?

If so, then this is the solution:

Front Sway Bar Removal & Installation To Remove:
WARNING
If equipped with a fire suppression system, de-power the system.
WARNING
The electrical power to the air suspension system must be turned off prior to hoisting, jacking or towing an air suspension vehicle. Failure to do so can result in unexpected inflation or deflation of the air springs, which can result in shifting of the vehicle during these operations. Turn the air suspension service switch off.

  1. Remove the wheel assemblies.
  2. Remove the nuts and the stabilizer bar link.
  3. Remove the stabilizer bar bracket nuts.
  4. Remove the front stabilizer brackets and the front stabilizer bar.
NOTE: Use the hex holding feature to prevent the studs from turning while removing the nuts.
To Install:
NOTE: Use the hex holding feature to prevent the studs from turning while installing the nuts.
  1. Install four new nuts, brackets and sway bar. Tighten the bracket nuts to 63 Nm (46 ft. lbs.).
  2. Install two new nuts and stabilizer links. Tighten the nuts to 63 Nm (46 ft. lbs.).
  3. Lower the vehicle.
  4. Enable air ride suspension and the fire suppression system if equipped.

Sway Bar Removal & Installation To Remove:
WARNING
If equipped with a fire suppression system, de-power the system.
CAUTION
Suspension fasteners are critical parts because they affect performance of vital components and systems and their failure can result in major service expense. New fasteners must be installed with the same part number or an equivalent part if installation is necessary. Do not use a replacement part of lesser quality or substitute design. Torque values must be used as specified during reassembly to make sure of correct retention of these parts. Orientation of the fasteners is also important on all rear suspension arms. Make sure the fasteners are installed in the same direction as they were in when removed.

How to install the trunk lid torsion bars on a 2007 Saturn Ion?


The procedure is the same on every vehicle that uses this type of opening assist. So here is another persons instructions on a GM product.
Tools used:
Leather gloves!!
3/4" combo wrench (biggest I had)
1/2" deep socket (3/8")
6" extension (3/8")

1.With the trunk lid up and the curved part of the torsion bar against the rear trunk wall, I slipped the box end of the combo wrench around the torsion bar. I don't remember which way I had the angle of the box end facing. Just use what will work.

2.Then use the extension and the socket on the end of the torsion bar and push back so that you can get the combo wrench down past the curve, this is key. Once that is done you can remove the socket and extension. Pressure will push the wrench against the rear trunk wall.

3.Now comes the fun part. Push the wrench forward (VERY CAREFULLY) all the way past the side engine grill support and onto the peg of the hinge. The tip of my torsion bar just nicked the grill support. Make sure the wrench is seated well because it could slip around on you and cause your paint some damage and maybe even you.

4.Now that the torsion bar is on the hinge peg, you'll notice that your left with a wrench stuck on the bar... Just move (wiggle, twist) the wrench as far to the end of the torsion bar as it will go.

5.Take the extension, without the socket and place over the tip of the torsion bar. Push down while you slip the wrench past the peg. Remove the extension and slip off the wrench.

6.Now use the extension again to push down and put the roller (plastic, metal) bearing onto the peg.

7.Secure all the bolts, and lube it up.

That's it. Hope it'll help someone else. Please be careful.

How to install trunk lid torsion bar on 2008 Honda Accord sedan


most torsion bars ure under the least tension when fully open and have one bar facing right and one left
insert the fixed end in the bracket then with a suitable tool twist the end of the bar down as you put it in the hinge bracket repeat for the opposite bar
It is not easy until you get the idea as to how to twist the bar as you put it in place

See here p55. You will need to cobble up a tool which hooks on the bar, somehow.

How to remove and replace trunk torsion bars?


Toyota refers to a special tool, see here p55

http://www.turboninjas.com/camry/bo.pdf

You can see how it works. I think an effective substitute could be mad from a length of hardwood with a dowel rod through it at right angles
