1998 Buick Century front sway bar replace.How do you get the old sway bar out does something else need to be loosened or removed?
Very Simple, Raise the cars front end, remove the wheels, remove the sway bar links on each side. Remove the two bolts on the bracket holding the sway bar on each side and then wiggle it out. I just replaced my rack and pinion and had to remove the sway bar to have more room to work and it was not hard at all.
If it has more than 100k miles, it probably needs new struts. Other possibilties are broken sway bar, worn sway bar bushings, or softer tires (like BFG Radial T/A). Check the anti-sway bars at the front and rear. You could have a broken sway bar linkage, which is easy and cheap to fix. The car will usually make a clunking sound if you have a broken linkage when you turn sharply.
Anyone know where you can find a DIY guide for replacing at least the front sway bar on a 97-03 grand prix gtp any advice would be appreciated greatly. also what is the lvl of experience needed.?
Haynes is a good manual for this. This is rather hard as the entire front sub frame (holds engine and tranny) must be lowered slightly in order to slide the sway bar out the driver's side wheel well. 1. Remove left wheel. 2. Raise car and support sub frame with a jack. 3. Disconnect nut at the rack to the steering shaft - under a protective boot (make sure the steering wheel and wheels are…

Not hard at all. Jack up van and remove wheel. The sway bar links are attached to the sway bar and strut with 18mm nuts. Simply remove the nuts (hold onto the bolt end to keep it from twisting with a 5mm allen wrench inserted into the end of the bolt). If the nut is too rusted to remove, you can also cut it off with a sawzall and a new/or good metal blade. Attach…
What causes 02 Liberty to make a grinding noise in the suspension when going over a small speed bump especially when it is cold outside Has had both recalls done on lower ball joints?
I have also had this problem - I believe that it is the anti sway bar bushings squeaking It is indeed the anti-sway bar bushings. They either need to be replaced or in some cases just lubricated and reinstalled. Not a major or expensive repair. The lower ball joint recall should have nothing to do with this. There is also a single rear ball joint that is not included in the recall and that can…

First, open the hood. Now remove the brake line support so that you can begin to get to the strut. Remove the pinch bolt that holds the strut at the bottom.

Electronic sway bar disconnect allows you, by the flip of a switch, to automatically disengage the sway bar when driving under 18mph in 4wd-low mode. The front wheels can then drop and compress up to 28% further on Wrangler Rubicon and 33% further on Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited. http://www.jeep.com/en/2008/wrangler/capability/performance/
