Did search couldn't find DIY for rear sway bar bushing replacement

To the gurus,
Searched forum and Google and couldn't find a good write up on how to replace the rear sway bar bushings. Is it as simple as unbolting and sliding in the new bushings or is there other areas that need unbolting first? Also can it be done without jacking up the rear end?

I don't get it...where are the instructions?
Did you not provide any with your DIY Project Guide?

Yes, I'm totally messing with you and being counterproductive
Sorry...

Haha. No worries. I'm used to getting flamed on forums... But hell, if you don't ask, you don't get.

You might try the performance and technical section. Lots of knowledgable folks there and I'd bet you'll have an answer pretty quickly

Easy breezy. Check and see if your sway is under load with the car in the air. If so you should disconnect the end links first. Then unbolt, slide out the old, and slide in the new bushings. I like a little white lithium grease on the inside of the bushing but it's not required. I think the bolt are 10mm. I suppose if you were really skinny... like about 35 lbs, you could get in there without jacking the rear but us normal folks need to get the car up in the air some.
