definitive on DIY changing front sway bar

Recommended Posts


looking for some definatives on swapping out the front sway bar on a C2, i might be looking in the wrong places but there doesnt seem to be much in the way of detailed info.

its obvious when looking under the car that theres a retaining plate with three bolts that clamps it in place but that this plate also holds the mount for the front arm.

im fairly experienced when it come to repairs and work on cars but ive looked several times and cant decide if the plate is simply providing a clamp for the bar and an attachement for the arm and therefor the only weight and forces involved are the physical weight of the plate itself or whether theres torsional forces here and unbolting will cause it to pop out or off, perhaps with some force

is it as simple as it seems, just jack up, unbolt three outer bolts and remove bar and reverse?

as a result im loathe to just start on it with a socket. im sensing the lack of info about means its as straightforward as it seems it could be and im simply over-engineering but if anyone could share their experience i would be much obliged
