Per Alldata
Raise and support the vehicle. Refer to Vehicle Lifting.
Remove the tire and wheel assemblies.
Remove the ELC height sensor link from the control arm
Remove the two bolts. Move the ELC height sensor for clearance when removing the stabilizer shaft
Remove the following from the control arm:
The stabilizer shaft link assembly bolt
The nut
The retainers
The sleeve
The insulators
Remover the clamp bolt. Bend the open end of the clamp upward.
Remove the stabilizer shaft and the insulator.
There were pics with number for all the parts but I can't paste that in
Hope this helps

Yes, I did get it out. Just had to find the right angle! Front went well, took down the back of the cradle, did the rear tranny mount while I was there. What a DIFFERANCE new motor mounts made, tranny shifts smother, locks into gear sooner! And the GXP swaybars and new bushings work GREAT, sticks in corners. Much funner to thow though the twisties!!

Painting up the headers today, getting ready for NEBF. Hope'n to get them in with a GXP catback im getting up there this weekend
