Doing the explorer swap and want to change the front swaybar bushings while it is out.

Getting the old ones off looks to be no problem (unbolt and cut off).

The procedure for putting the new ones on in my manual seems like it's overcomplicated. You know how manuals are sometimes. For example; when pulling the heads, the book said to remove the exhaust manifold before pulling the head. I found that it was way easier to leave them on, and then take them off after they are out of the car.

What's the best and easiest way to get the new swaybar bushing on. Any tips or tricks would be greatly appreciated.:)

Thanks,
Rob

The new ones are normally slit lengthwise so you just pull it open and snap it over the bar and bolt it down to the K-member again. After of course you have the sway bar unbolted and the old ones removed. It is that easy.

I feel like a [email protected] right now.
All it took was a little effort on my part to find the slit. I thought it had to be slid on from the end.:zdunno:

Most exellent tip 4 Cam Bird.

thanks,
Rob
