Blog back track - Dinan Rear Sway Bar - 8/23/2011

Backed car onto metal ramps, took a pair of wrenches (16mm, 18mm?) and replaced the stock bar and bushings in about 30 minutes. I set the adjustable bar to full firm, figured might as well dial it up. With my staggered set up, it has proven to neutralize hard corners very effectively. I still have NOT snapped off any sway bar bracket yet, so I probably did not push it as hard as some folks have.

While I was under the car, there was a ******* earthquake in Virginia that went all the way to New York. We haven't had an earthquake in like 100 years, and it had to happen while I was underneath a 4000lbs vehicle. Thank god it was only a mild tremor when it got to New York, the metal ramps held, I was quite lucky.

    That was close!

    In retrospect, do you have any recommendations for DIYers working under the belly of the Beast?
