Swaybar Kit w/ Endlinks
Front Swaybar Kit
Note: It will be easier to align and install the end links if both front wheels are loaded evenly at close to normal ride height. Ramps or a drive on lift work best.
1) Remove the nuts on the end-links and remove the end-links and bushings (when applicable).
2) Remove the swaybar bracket bolts (where the swaybar bolts to the frame rails/ K-member) and remove the swaybar from the car.
3) Pry the swaybar brackets apart and remove them from the swaybar.
4) Grease the new pivot bushings and put them on the new swaybar.
5) Install the swaybar brackets on the swaybar around the new bushings.
6) Install the end-links and bushings. In most cases the factory end-links can be reused. If your swaybar came with new end-links and/or bushings install them at this time. Tighten the end-links until the washers are snug against the bushings. Don't make them so tight that the bushings squeeze out the sides. On 2011 and new applications, make sure to use Red Lock-Tight on the endlink nuts.
Note: The swaybar will make a squeaking or clanking noise if it is not greased properly. Because it takes time for the swaybar to seat properly in the new bushing, it may be necessary to reapply grease to the swaybar a few weeks after the initial installation. After the initial break-in period reapply grease approximately once a year to prevent squeaking.
Rear Swaybar Kit
1) To facilitate the installation of the Steeda Street Rear Swaybar, it is necessary to raise the entire vehicle to access the rear suspension. If a car lift is not available mount the car on jack stands.
2) Remove the two (2) bolts that attach the end links to the frame rail. Pull the factory end links from the mount and discard the nuts.
3) Remove the bolts that mount the factory bushing clamps and swaybar to the axle assembly. The factory bushing clamps will be re-used. It may be helpful to have a second set of hands to hold the bar while removing these last four (4) bolts. Remove the factory swaybar.
4) Slide the two provided bushings (part # 50xx) over the tips of the swaybar and locate them in the same location as on the old bar, approximately 37 1/4” apart. Make sure to grease them with the provided grease. Pic 1 & 2
5) Place the last two included bushings (part # 53xx) in the original location, on the ends of the swaybar.
6) Grease the upper bushing of the Billet swaybar end link and install it into the chassis bracket, so that the Steeda logo will face towards the rear of the vehicle (18-lb-ft). Insert the factory bolts and torque to 85 lb-ft using the provided flange nuts.
7) Using the included clamps to bolt up the two ends of the bar to the axle housing, torque to 52 lb-ft.
8) Finally rotate the swaybar so the center bushings go into the new Billet endlinks. Install the Steeda logo caps with the provided flanged head bolts. It’s highly recommended you use some lock-tight on the threads of the bolts.
9) Once complete, the sway bar should look like Figure 4. Double check all fasteners and bolts.
