Rear Sway Bar Link Replacement
 
Any suggestions for replacing the rear sway bar links? Are there any torque specs I need to follow or base is off the compression of the bushing?

What about any tips to replacement?

Thanks!

Nothing really, its a pretty straight forward job. The manual I found shows 40 ft lbs of torque for the bolts, but I didn't bother to torque them, I just made sure they were tight and then gave them an extra pull on the wrench. Just pull one off, line up the new one, bolt it down, and repeat for the other side. Should be a quick job. Good luck!

It was a fairly simple job - other than the rust, it went smoothly

Looks good! Yes, after 10+ years of road salt the rust definitely adds a new dimension to car repairs.

It doesn't help with these Wisconsin winter's either - same to you out in Minnesota!
