Well, it wasn't so cake for me...

First off, remember that the front sway bar on the V has different design for bushings, so you will need different sway bar bushing brackets for the front.

Secondly, removing the brackets on the front is a PIA, and tightening them to speck is even harder (the right bracket on my car had A/C or brake lines running right over the bolts, so something as simple as getting the sockets on took some time to figure out.

I ended up taking my time, painting the bars with red paint, and spending an entire day wrestling them into place. I'm glad and proud that I went through with it, and I'd recommend it; I'm just letting you know that this was probably one of the hardest sway bar replacements that I've done/seen/heard about. If you stick with it you'll be glad you did it.

Well I guess if you can swap an LS1 on a 4th gen Camaro by comparison a sway bar swap is cake.

I would like to know what the differences are between the drivers side, and passenger side bracket placement.

And the lip what exactly does that means. Thanks
