MK1 Focus anti roll bar bushes

Hi folks,

Im getting a random knocking noise when driving me Focus and had a look at it today, I removed one of the sway links and shook as much as I could on the anti roll bar and I was getting a small knocking noise

Now the bushes seem to be fine by looking at them and when shaking the bar I can see it hitting anywhere or were the knocking noise is coming from so was going to take on and replace them tomorrow I think.

Access to them seems very very tight and was wondering how awkward a job getting near the bolts will be, so any one any advise on this one?

I had a similar knock that drove me nuts for 5K miles-replace the sway bar links.

Jack up the car take off the front tire (use jack stand of course) and access to the links is quite good. Use am 18mm wrench (spanner I believe) to hold the studs and they come off quite easily.
