Boxster S 986 front anti roll bar/sway bar bushes replace

How easy is it to change the 2 front anti roll bar/sway bar bushes on the front of a 986 lying on your back with the car on axle stands.....is it just remove the 2 studs on either end and the bar falls enough to let you change out the bushes????

Also, any lubricants needed prior to fitting and where?

It is not hard lying on your back.
There is more you move out of the way to change them
Have to remove the underside fairing and un-bolt and slide the bracket for the control are link.
Go to Pelican for How to
You do need a Torque wrench
You should think about doing the drop links at the same time

what sort of symptoms were you having? I have a very loud clank/creak doing hard cornering 20+ mph. the end links were bad, so I replaced them, but still have the noise. wondering if it could be the bushings.
