Hi,

I would like to replace


Hi,

I would like to replace the rear sway bar bushings on my '77 308 GTB. I am not sure if I will go with Factory bushings or aftermarket (I read in past threads that ES makes replacements).

Is it necessary to unload both rear wheels by jacking, or can the bar merely be taken off?

Once the bar is off, I assume it is not just "press out, press in" - any other step/tricks to the process? What kind of lubrication should be used?

Thanks,

Anthony

Hi Anthony,

the bar is not spring loaded, it just unbolts and comes off. no special tricks I can think of.

Do you still need the special factory brushes used to apply it?

Should the link arm bushings be lubed on both the inside and outside?

Thanks,
