Stock Swaybar Removal

  1. Park your car in a flat, level area and allow it to cool down properly.

  2. Using a 10mm wrench, remove the negative terminal of the battery.

  3. Jack your car up and support it properly, either using a lift, ramps, or jack and jack stands.

  4. Lay a blanket or cardboard down under the car, or grab a creeper.  In this case his name is Andrew

  5. Use a 17mm wrench to undo the nut while using a m6 allen wrench to hold the center of the endlink and keep it from spinning.  Break each side loose first (sway bar and control arm) and then remove the nut completely.  Repeat with the other side.

  6. With the end links loosened on both side, undo the two 12mm fasteners holding the sway bar to the subframe and drop it out of the car.


  1. Loosely slip your end links into the sway bar and control arms on each side.  There should be a washer on either side of what you're attaching through.

  2. Now you will want to drop the car back down on it's wheels.  If you have ramps or stands that are designed to support the vehicle on it's wheels safely, now is a good time to use them.

  3. To adjust the endlinks properly you'll want to ensure that the sway bar isn't going to hit anything through it's range of travel, and that the threaded portion of the end link on both sides is relatively close to 90°.  To do so you may need to take out one end of the end link and rotate it to make the end link longer or shorter.

  4. Once you"re happy with the length, go ahead and tighten the end link to the control arm and sway bar.  Then hold the body of the end link in place with a 16mm before tightening the jam nut on the end link to prevent the body from rotating any more.

  5. Go out and Enjoy!
