Remove the nuts on the end-links and remove the end-links and bushings (when applicable).
Remove the swaybar bracket bolts (where the swaybar bolts to the frame rails/05 K-member) and remove the swaybar from the car.
Pry the swaybar brackets apart and remove them from the swaybar.
Grease the new pivot bushings and put them on the new swaybar.
Install the swaybar brackets on the swaybar around the new bushings.
Install the end-links and bushings. In most cases the factory end-links can be reused. If your swaybar came with new end-links and/or bushings install them at this time. Tighten the end-links until the washers are snug against the bushings. Don’t make them so tight that the bushings squeeze out the sides.On 2005 andnew applications, make sure to use Red Loc-Tight on the endlink nuts.
The swaybar will make a squeaking or clanking noise if it is not greased properly. Because it takes time for the swaybar to seat properly in the new bushing, it may be necessary to reapply grease to the swaybar a few weeks after the initial installation. After the initial break-in period reapply grease approximately once a year to prevent squeaking.
I'm pretty certain this is the best shopping experience I've ever had. I found what I wanted on AmericanMuscle.com, then did some price shopping and ended up coming back and order from them because they had the lowest price AND free shipping too. I honestly look forward to spending more money with American Muscle. They have customer submitted photos in addition to their great product photography as well as installation guides from users and manufacturers. Their videos are honest and incredibly useful. I can't think of anything else I'd like to see from them.
