    No special equipment needed, although a lift makes it much easier.

    Re: ATS Rear Sway Bar End Links - INSTALLED - WOW

    I recieved the sway bar links today, plan on installing them over the weekend. I know polyurethane bushings need greasing, but im inexperienced in this sort of thing, starting out my mods small. Does the whole bushing need to be taken apart to be greased inside where the outer edge of the polyurethane makes contact with the inner part of the metal that holds it? Or is it just the faces that need lubrication? Also, i noticed the metal sleeve extends out past the bushing, does it need to be shaved down so the washer is laying flat on the bushing?
    Thanks for answering my questions if you have time!

    This may be put on my list of mods to do. I've experienced BWoody end links in past vehicles and was always impressed.

    Just give Mike @ BWoody a call and he will gladly walk you through his recommended lub and installation tips. Those are mine in the initial post pics - and now with almost 20K miles on them, not one squeak, rattle or hummmm......

    FYI, for those who are interested, I did go ahead and replace both my front and rear sway bar bushings with Energy Suspension universals. Nice upgrade and does not make a harsh ride - again, just firms things up a bit more. Note though, the front bushings are actually impregnated onto the bar itself and was a bitch to remove. The rears took 15 mins to change out.

    Great info FDNY. I think I will wait until the ATS-V comes out and see what they have done for the "V" setup. I do like my BWoody rear links, they are worth the price.
