Post Any hints on installing rear suspension stuff?

I'm going to be installing a rear strut brace, along with a sway bar, when they get here from Teagues. Any one have any hints for either that will make my life easier?

Thanks

The sway bar us easy and pretty stright foward, but I find it helps if you put the car on ramps. Myself I like Rino Ramps.

I haven't done the strut brace in the rear yet but I understand that is a bugger. You have to remove the rear seat and seatbelt tensioner to get at the top strut bolts.

Remove seats... At least you don't have to cut into plastic like you do when installing the rear tower in a wagon!! That sucks.

remove the top part of the rear seats, use a size 14mm socket and remove the bolt holding the seatbelt retractor. Move that unit up, unbolt your rear strut bars head from the bar. Stick it through the rubber flap hole and the bolt it back on.. it might be a little tricky to get the head in with the black speaker cable housing in the way.. but u'll manage after couple tries.. sway bar is easy if dun have a aftermarket exhaust like mine to block the piping.
