How to replace stabilizer link?

The stabilizer links are expendable elements, so if diagnostics proved their defectiveness, the parts are to be replaced. This can be performed single-handedly. It is recommended to perform stabilizer links replacement on one axle in pairs. The replacement algorithm will insignificantly differ for front and rear stabilizer links. Typically the algorithm is the next:

  1. The car sets on the handbrake. A needed body part is lifted with the help of the jack or the lift.
  2. The half-axle is fixed with the help of a hex wrench, fastening nuts of the stabilizer link are unscrewed and after this the component is demounted.
  3. Mounting spot is cleaned, a new component is installed and after this assembling of the elements is performed in the reverse order.

Replace the stabiliser links as a set on each car axle.
It is recommended to change stabiliser bushings while replacing the stabiliser links.
