- FRONT SWAY BAR

2001 Ford Focus

I just brought in my Ford Focus for an oil change and they told me both front sway bar links are loose. I had some repair work done with a bearing- is it possible that the last repair didn't tighten this well enough? Is this something I should worry about-- Can I tighten these myself with bringingthe vehicle in?

Bearing has nothing to do with the swaybar links, there is no re-tightening of the link bolts once they're installed, they are a part with a high-failure rate, they wear and start rattling like the frontend is falling off, they're usually relatively easy to replace, I've done 2 of my cars in the past year, Taurus's.
