I installed my Ridetech shocks today and decided I should lube my squeaky rear sway bar bushings. There was a lot of load on them and it made it hard to get the bolts out of the brackets on the A-arms.
It didn't matter much if the car was jacked up or not.
I tried to bend the ends back (essentially straightening out the bar) in order to get the A-arm bracket bolts in but I couldn't make that work so I unbolted the center mounting brackets. I was then able to get the A-arm brackets in but now the center brackets are sticking out toward the back and there is no way I can push them forward to get the bolts back on.
It's like the sway bar arms angle is too great.
