This weekend was front suspension refresh-palooza. I still have a couple of pieces to replace but had a question about the sway bar bushings. I'm good with the replacement procedure except for unloading the sway bar.

After I finish swapping the passenger side bits, I plan to attack this with the vehicle on the ground at normal height (plus 2.5" for the SYA spacers and rods).

Am I going to have to Jack it up at all to relieve tension or loosen the newly installed end links? Or should I be ok to remove the brackets and replace the bushings without raising or lowering the vehicle? I just do not want the bar to move and, best case I can't reinstall the brackets; worse case it springs up and injuries my dainty fingers.

What are your thoughts?

sway bar should only be "loaded" if wheels of the same axle are on uneven surfaces. raise the car equally on both sides and you will be fine.
