I just got Progress Rear Sway bar from New Edge today. I plan to install it this weekend. It comes with instructions, fortunately.. but i wanted to know how hard for me to install it? how many mm of wrench to remove the bolts on the sway bar? (my car came with the rear sway! yay)...

its real easy. jack the car up and have at it. i used closed ended wrenches and some sockets. if you got the rachet wrenches, i would use them.

got them in today, but do i have to reuse the OEM brackets (the black ones) or is it still good? i am afraid that the steel brackets that came with the sway bar wont hold that long..?

You are supposed to install the stock brackets over the steel progress brackets. At least I think thats what my instructions said, lol... It was a tight fit between the 2 brackets but its solid as a rock now.

Yup.

Its normally a really easy install. Half hour tops. But thats assuming nothing is rusted solid. 13mm or 15mm bolts hold the bar in (I forget what size the factory endlinks are, maybe 10mm or 13mm)

well, looks like i will just have the OEM brackets installed later when i have time. (i tried to put the OEM brackets back on, but it doesnt fit. so looks like the chrome ones will remain for time being til i finds a way to bend the OEM brackets a little bit.
