How to Replace Front Sway Bar Links 06-11 Honda Civic

Today I am going to replace the front sway bar link.

Items you need:

  • 14mm Wrench
  • 17mm Wrench
  • 19mm Socket
  • 1/2 Inch Breaker Bar
  • Ratchet
  • Torque Wrench
  • Rust Penetrant
  • 5mm Allen Wrench
  • Floor Jack
  • Jack Stands
  • Wire Brush

 

Now let’s do it.

Lug nuts loosened I should be able to use the socket and finished removing them and I can take the wheel off, so I can get to the sway bar link.

It’s bolted to the bottom of the control arm here and the sway bar on the top

Use a 14-millimeter box wrench break these free, spin do the same to another one

Get the 5-millimeter Allen key into the top or the top part of the sway bar link

Use a floor jack to lift up on the suspension arm

Breaker bar anxious in and kind of hold

That sway bar link loose

Wrench on here firstAllenn key in here, so I can counter hold it

Take the new one, let’s slide it up in here capture the top nut push this up

Turning the stud on the ball joint here grab our 5-millimeter Allen key again, do the same for the top

Bar link is installed reinstall the wheel

Just read the lug nuts on by hand. I will torque them now torque the lug nuts to 80-foot pounds and go on a cross pattern
