good write up.

And that front sway came out with the subframe intact, exhaust out, sitting on cinder blocks on a car trailer....

Yeah, my exhaust kept getting in the way, and i could seem to get it past the sub frame either way, so i dropped it a little and it came right out.

it definitely will, they're both h-bodies.

and VERY nice write up ryan!!! thats one heck of a write up...now lets all say thanks to the invention of spellcheck.

and yes, nothing can be stressed to anyone more than THERE IS NO BOLT YOU'VE EVER DEALT WITH LIKE ONE OF THOSE STRUT/HUB KNUCKLE BOLTS. its like they have a personal vendetta against the person that is trying to break them loose.

very very nice indeed.

If you pop the tie rods off and rotate the bar up you don't have to drop the exhaust or subframe. I did it on my car and Jason and I did it on his car.

We did have to protect the fender though while doing this, A shop towel was there to ensure no paint damage.

The sway bar upgrade helped my car handle MUCH better then the standard SE'*. It has been one of my favorite mods. I hope to get new struts to smooth the ride out, and firm it up somewhat as the valving in my struts is blown more than a customer at the bunny ranch.

Yea, but i think dropping the sub frame and exhaust is easier then doing a tie rod end

Tie rods can be a PITA to undo sometimes.
Sub frame bolts came out easy on mine, even when i have to do it once before when i replaced all 4 back mounts.
