Gents - Here is another relatively simple DIYer.
I noticed that my rear driver side sway bar bracket was cracked so I immediately order a set of BeastPower rear sway bar brackets from Cal @ JleviSW, who BTW has provided me the best customer service to date. Placed the order last Monday and the arrived on Friday, and I just finished installing them.
These are beautiful pieces of aluminum with a very nice black finish. Provided are the following:
2x BeastPower brackets
2x socket head screws
2x flange nuts
Unbolt the (broken) OEM sway bar brackets using 2x 13mm wrenches:
At each end of the sway bar is a nut (don't have the exact size here, I used an adjustable wrench - which was a total PITA) that MUST
be removed before throwing on the BeastPower brackets. The new brackets are very beefy and has a very tight fit on the sub-frame. It would be a good idea to have a can of WD40 or PB Blaster on hand to loosen/lubricate all the nuts and bolts.
I started out on the driver side and spent quite a bit of time as I didn't have a wide variety of tools to ease the work, but once I developed my own technique the other side was cake. This is what the end of the sway bar looks like:
I lubricated all the parts before placing the new bracket on, this makes fitment slight easier. Line up the bracket with the holes and install it using the supplied socket head screw, washer and nut.
Once that has been tighten, go back and nut up the end of the sway bar using the original nut that you removed.
Repeat for the other side and here are the results:
Fitment is perfect and always remember to place a jack stand under the proper jack points when working under your car. Place a wooden block or a stopper in front of the front wheels.
Go wash your hands and pop open a cold one
