I’m having trouble replacing the rear sway bar links. The bolts aren’t bad to take off but the bottom part goes into the sway bar. It’s pretty hard to come off and put on. Anything helps. Please and thank you.

When you say it goes into the sway bar, I assume you mean you are having an issue getting it to get into place as it is hard to move on the bar? If so, just use some WD 40. This will not hurt the rubber and allow it to slip into place. Then it will eventually wear off.

If this is not what you are dealing with maybe get a picture or two of what the issue is and we will be able to help out. Thanks

It s pretty hard to even remove the old ones. So I used a grinder and cut them off. I had a hard time putting the new ones on. Almost as if you need a ball joint press.
