Well it definitely helps having air tools and being on a lift. You know I am disabled so I did one side first and let me tell you I think it would be easier just to drop both sides in the whole bar first like you did I still have to do the other side so I'm going to take the one side loose again and I have some welding to do on the frame on the driver side because the bolt had rotted through on the big bushing clamps so I will have to weld in some new metal with a nut on the back side. Nice job man

Erik Myers says:

Why would you need to replace the sway bar? bent or rusted?

I asked this before watching the video, is that truck up for a whole front end replacement? soo much rust…

Justin Martinez says:

surprised it didnt fall apart more taking off those bolts and bushings

Jim Ervin says:

That job was done on a 3/4 ton four wheel drive, not a 1500 1/2 ton.

Swapping out the sway bar on my Suburban now and I'm having a hell of a time getting the mounts to go in place. Thanks for the illustration that I'm on the right track!
