Front Sway Bar components
Time to start pressing the bushings in. I didn't have access to a vice this time, so I seated them up on a piece of cardboard on the ground and stepped on them.
Start removing the bolts holding on the U-Brace. They're 17mm with 2 12mm's in the very front. This is a photo of the 1st one I removed. Had to use a breaker bar most of the way since it was so rusty. All mine might look different because I have a Whiteline ALK installed which means longer bolts and spacers between the chassis and the brace.
So much rust. One of the Whiteline spacers crumbled apart as I pulled it off.
U-Brace off the car. Just slide it out of your way.
Remove this plate. Two of the bolts have nuts welded to the frame, but the other two you'll need another wrench since it's just bolted on.
Time to remove the endlinks from the vehicle. Again, not necessary to remove them from the sway bar since it's coming off the car anyway. This is interesting since they're spherical bushings, so you'll need a 15mm allen key to prevent it from turning.
BE VERY CAREFUL. IT IS VERY EASY TO STRIP THE ALLEN BOLT. Clean out the hole as much as you can so you can get the allen key as far in as you can.
