Default Sway Bar Install Q's

Ok so i just recieved my whiteline adjustable rear sway bar and endlinks, has anyone installed this before? Should i just go to a shop and get it installed? I'm just wondering how difficult it is and if anyone has any tips or anything.

Thanks!

Not hard. Get the rear up on some ramps, not in the air, and go to it. Pretty self-explanatory once you get under there. Take the bolts out of the endlinks...

Also, it helps to remove the muffler from the hanger. It'll give you a little extra clearance when you finagle the bar out. I had to take off the right wheel and wiggle it out from there because the jacks couldn't go high enough to take the bar out from the bottom.

You'll need enough clearance to angle it out. A big tip is spinning the bar as you work it out to clear the exhaust.

I did mine with the rear in the air and the wheels off. Pretty simple really.
