[DML] Re: swaybar removal



Chris - The secret is to take the sway bar out with the weight of 
the car on the front suspension.  With the front wheels hanging in 
the air, the angle between the bar and the lower control arms is 
quite acute.  This puts the bar in a real bind in the bushings that 
are inserted into the lower control arms where the sway bar 
connects.  If you need to do this removal with the car in the air, 
you need to put a strap around the two ends of the bar near the 
lower control arms, and draw the ends of the bar closer together as 
you pull it forward out of those bushings.  The issue is that when 
the lower controls arms are at the lowest position, the attachment 
points for the sway bar are closer together than they are with the 
car at normal stance.

how to you get the front swaybar out of it's bushings on the lower 
control arm? I fought with it for a good three hours before giving 
up and just dropping the front suspension with it still tied 
together..
