The fronts aren't nearly as easy as the rear, I almost always have to deal with them being siezed to the knuckle(which is easily fixed with a BFH) or sway bar (which isn't as easy). Occasionally the nuts freeze halfway up the threads and spin, fixing this makes for a nice balancing act with a C clamp to keep pressure on the endlink


In comparison, I can do the rears without even jacking up the car.
+1 I did my back ones in my driveway without even jacking up the car. The fronts, I pulled the front tires off at the shop for easier access.

After having already replaced the front sway bar links I went to install sway bar bushing. The link didn't want to seperate easily from the bar so I used a pitman arm puller and it came apart very easily. I love the Moog bushings as they have a slit which helps to get them onto the bar. Moog doesn't make stock sized bushings for the rear so I had to get creative with a c-clamp, silicone spray, and a flat piece of metal to get the solid Raybestos bushing over the flat ends of the bar.

My mechanic installed the Moog endlink kits, no problem. The 'Clunk' is mercifully gone.

Many thanks to numerous responders.

I guess I can expect the occasional bushing failure as the years go by. Can live with that.

Cheers,
