Replacing snaped front end sway bar

(2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue)
in Verona, NJ on April 05, 2011
The front end sway bar has snapped at the link connection on the driver’s side. My question, is this a repair that I should try to do myself? I am mechanically inclined, have changed tie rod ends and done other major repairs on other vehicles.

you will need the sway bar and both end links.
it is tight to remove but not a bad job. just be carefull of the steering rack and hoses.

Thanks. Looking up the part they sell a sway bar kit (includes a solid bar, links and bushings). I was going to order the kit. Another question, one instructional manual suggested removing the lower sub frame and disconnecting the steering shaft, do I really need to follow those instructions? Thanks again.

in some cases, i have lowered the rear sub frame but i never had to disconnect the steering shaft. once again, it is tight but take your time and be carefull.

Good luck
