Replacing split anti roll bar bushes

Recommended Posts

Hi

When loosening the bolts holding down the split bushes is there a strong spring up or down by the roll bar and is it necessary to restrain it whilst taking off the old bush and re-fitting the new one

thanks

Hi, going by past experiences, the inners are usually OK, but the outers will need support or levering. It wouldn't do any harm just supporting the inners and releasing them slowly.

Thanks for that but these are the ones that go around the bar clamped by a bracket to the front subframe, one each side?

Ensure the car is parked on exactly level ground.
If there is no "twist" in the anti roll bar, it will be completely safe.
As you loosen the brackets, the bar will be very easy to move up & down.
