Front sway bar

How long does it take to replace the front sway bar not just the links but the bar and links

Thanks
Dave

Depends on tools/shop. You need to drop the front cross member to do it. That on jack stands with hand tools will take longer than a shop on a lift with air tools.

Jack front of car, remove wheels, remove endlinks. Then lower cradle, remove sway bar brackets, remove bar.

Ive read that loosening the cradle can give you enough room with out fully removing the bolts that hold it on

Like Steve mentioned= it depends on what access of a shop or doing on the ground at home.Goes by pretty fast w/ a rack. Make sure to grease the sway bar bushings good. When I removed the cradle to install a torsen, I regreased the bushings.
