The sway bars are devices that preven the car body from rolling or tilting from side to side as you drive through corners. They are on most cars at the front and usually the rear suspension. They have bushings in the middle that can wear out, but more commonly "link ends" on their outboard ends that connect to the control arms, that wear and get noisy. You can buy kits to replace the bushings and link ends that will fix this noise.

A sway bar is a suspension piece that keeps the left and right side of vehicle connected to help with turns. They are held together through sway bar links at each end, which are fairly common to break or rattle over bumps.

check the rear stabilizer links. there will be a round bar than runs accross the rear suspension. There will be two links that attach this bar to the lower control arm. either one of the links is broken or the bushings that hold the bar in place are worn out.

Cd player removal


At the auto parts store, you can find a radio removal tool. It consists of two U-shaped metal bars. The intent is to insert the metal bars into the four holes on the front of the radio. When you pry the bars out, they release the clips that hold the radio in. I have heard of this proceedure being done with a coat hanger, but I have not tried it myself.
