With the springs done, it was time to tackle the sway bars. The factory bar runs above the exhaust system, but was fairly easy to unbolt and remove. Since the pillow bushings are part of the bar, it did put up a little bit of a fight, but once we found the right angle, it slid out. Before we installed the new Detroit Speed bar, we made sure to coat the new bushing with some of the lubricant provided. The stabilizer shaft (i.e., endlink) was torqued to 36 lb-ft, while the bushing bolts were twisted to 16 lb-ft. The rear bar is also adjustable with two different endlink mounting points. Per Detroit Speed's recommendation, we used the more aggressive one.
