Hey guys, I need help on a the rear sway bar. This morning as I left for work I noticed a clanking noise coming from the rear of the car. Turns out the rubber piece on the passenger side supporting the sway bar from rattling somehow slide towards my tire. Not sure how this happened, but wondering is this a hard job to do by myself? I appreciate the feedback.

I apologize, it is the rear stabilizer bar?? not sway bar? The bushin on the passenger side came out.

The rear sway bar ( or anti-roll bar or stabilizer bar, all are used interchangeably) is connected to the car in two places. From your description I can't determine which is causing your problem, so I'll describe both.

One is via what is called a drop link. This is a 5-6 inch long, slim piece with a spherical joint at each end. One end of the drop link bolts through the hole at the end of the sway bar and the other bolts to the wheel upright, near where the shock and spring are mounted. The bolts that connect the drop links will sometimes work loose, causing the clanking sound you described. As long as the nut is still there, all you need to do is retighten it.

The sway bar is also bolt to the rear cross member with a couple of bolts and a U shaped bracket, which uses a rubber grommet to reduce noise. If this part has somehow worked loose or fallen off, you'll need to tighten or replace it.

Hope this helps.

The bar is constantly moving when you corner the car, putting pressure on that bushing. Since there is a tear in the bushing, it may have to be replaced, otherwise, it could continue to come out. Keep an eye on it as you said. If you slips or begins to work it's way out again, replace it.
