DIY: Front Sway Bar Installation

As simple as this one is, i just wanted to share it

The complete how-to, with photos can be found here:


Tools Required:

* 17mm socket (endlinks)
* 14mm socket (sway brackets)
* 10mm socket and/or screwdriver (underbody shield)
* PB Blaster or Liquid Wrench (optional)

Steps:

1. If your vehicle has it, remove the 10 or so screws attaching the underbody shield to the vehicle. This is the same shield that covers the oil pan. I only have a few of these screws/bolts installed for ease of use so the number of screws you will personally have to remove will vary.

2. A note on the next step: Although the bolts noted are only lightly torqued down, if you haven’t touched them in a while, they may be hard to remove without the proper tools. An impact will break these loose in no time at all. For extra measure, spray some PB Blaster or Liquid Wrench on them a few minutes before proceeding.

3. Remove four (4) 14mm bolts holding the sway bar mounting brackets (1 front, 1 rear on each of the passenger and driver-side brackets).

4. Remove the bolt holding the sway bar to the endlinks with a 17mm socket.

5. Remove the metal brackets from the OEM bar and set aside.

6. Prepare the included polyurethane bushings from Eibach by lubricating with either the included white grease or, as shown here, AMSOIL Synthetic Multi-Purpose Grease.

7. Insert the lubricated bushing onto the sway bar then attach the OEM bracket to it.

8. Attach the assembly back to the frame and endlinks.

9. Torque down the brackets to 37 ft/lbs., and the endlink to 62 ft/lbs. (A tip on the endlinks, hold the other end of the bolt with a wrench to prevent it from spinning while you tighten it).

10. Done!

Nice write up!!

FWIW, I would add a point to be sure & check how the OE bar is installed (shape at the end links)
It's easy to mix up the right/left orientation of the new bar.

Nice write up/find. Is there a reason you only installed the front bar? On gshack it notes that the center and rear are already pretty stiff so is this just a cheaper alternative than doing the back as well? Also, is the rear just as easy to install if you go that route? Thanks in advance.

Thanks guys. I only had time to install the front for now, ideally one definitely should do a matched set. The rears are easy enough, but couldn't get to it due to an issue with removing a bolt on the 6pt brace (my fault, if anything).

this was super easy when i did it with the Hotchkis ones. i had to go to the store to get a open ended wrench that was big enough to hold the other side of the endlink though..

I just used a monkey wrench on that one

Ian, would you mind clarifying what you meant about the ends? I just put it in the way it looked right to me, and it went it with ease.

On my stock front sway bar there is about 1/8" gap in-between the collar and the mount on one side and no gap on the other. Could this be causing clunking and vibration in the front of the car during bumps?
