this article is how to repair the back bushings on the sway bar. So the sway bar you can kind of see is kind of disconnected right next to my channel locks there. And then the bottom bolt is what I’m trying to get off right now. The bottom bolt here is a 15 millimeter on the stock bushings.
Hey, how’s it going Dave 2d here so Amazon partnered with me for a second gift guide this one’s for smart home tech… The replacement bushings, which are like 6bucks, it’s a 14 millimeter. Basically how that works is the nut comes off and all these are end parts right here so you can see that half of it will go here, and half will go here, and the other halfwill go up and above and below the sway bar end. So it’s kind of cool. So I got the other bushing off and I have disassembled the entire bushing. They just come in little parts like that. So I put the top part in and I’ll slide this part up and on to it. All right, so you’re having a little problem with your earbuds or your earphones.
They don’t work either … And then that metal circle thing right there, and then I’ll start with the bottom partand kind of assemble the whole thing like that. Ok so the bushing is assembled on there. I just got to tighten up the bottom. That should bring the whole thing into sync. And then the bushing’s in place. Pretty straightforward. Pretty simple.
Ok so we’re starting with the other bushing. If you don’t have a breaker bar what you can do is take your wrench, put it on thetop, so it’s kind of lining up against the tire back there as you can see. Then take your ratchet, attach it to the bottom end right there. And then you can extend your ratchet with just your regular wrench attached to the endlike that. And then you can rotate the whole thing a lot easier with that much more leverage. And then it keeps the top bolt from spinning because of the other wrench over there. So it works out pretty well.
Ok so the bushing wasn’t spinning. The top nut and the bottom nut spin independently of each other. So what I did was I took a pair of these locking pliers and I clamped it onto the end of thebolt there. And then on the other end up there on the far side you can see I have my ratchet. I used my same wrench extending trick and extended the reach of it with a clamp on thebottom and the extender reach on the top, I was able to twist the top nut off as well.
