I put in some new bushings in my 2004 V8 Sport yesterday. Using two jacks, I lowered the rear sub-frame. The bushings were really stuck to bar. What helped was disconnecting the sway bar from the links. I could then maneuver the bar to get the bushings off. So, getting the bushings back into the bracket was another huge chore until I figured out that they have to slide in from the top. IOWs, align the bushing as it would be above the bracket, then it will slide it. Make sure to loosely attach the plate and get the bolt started, then go to the other side and do the same thing. I can fell a major difference with the rear end being much more solid, even with some worn control arms. Finally, I got a new rear sway link because the moog I got from RA got stripped. DON'T USE THE NUTS THAT ROCK AUTO PROVIDES WITH THEIR LINKS. THOSE ARE WHAT STRIPPED MY LINKS. GET NEW OR REUSE THE STOCK NUTS WITH LOCTITE.
