2. Using your jack, raise the front of the car and rest it on jack stands, making sure to follow the directions provided for your particular Mustang by Ford
3. Remove the wheel on the side of the car that will be worked on. If you do not have an impact wrench, it might help to break the Mustang lug nuts
loose before raising the car.
4. Turn the Mustang steering wheel
away from the side you are working on (i.e. turn the wheel all the way to the right if you are working on the driver side or left if you are working on the passenger side).
6. Remove the sway bar upper end link nut with an 18mm deep well socket. To do this, an impact gun can be used. However, if an impact gun is unavailable, hold the stud in place with an 8mm wrench and remove the nut with an 18mm open ended wrench.
7. Remove the lower end link nut on the Mustang front sway bar
with an 18mm wrench. Hold the stud in place with an 8mm wrench. Due to their location, an impact wrench probably won't fit.
8. Slide the sway bar end link out and away from the bracket to remove it. You may need to adjust the floor jack to relieve any tension on the sway bar end link so you can remove it.
9. Slide new Mustang sway bar
end link into the brackets. The upper stud will point outward and the lower stud will point inward.
10. Loosely thread both the upper and lower nuts onto the end link studs.
11. Using an 18mm wrench, hold the upper stud in place. Use an impact wrench with the 18mm socket to tighten the nut to 85 ft/lbs.
12. Using an 8mm wrench, hold the lower stud in place. Use an 18mm open ended wrench to tighten the nut to 85 ft/lbs.
14. Re-torque the upper and lower nuts.
15. Reinstall the Mustang wheel.
16. If you purchased two Mustang sway bar
end links, repeat this process on the other side.
17. To finish up the installation of your new Mustang Ford Sway Bar End Link
, lower the car and go for a test drive to make sure everything is installed correctly.
