Re: [Chrysler300] F sway bars. Any different than rest of Chrysler models?





Wow!  I was concerned about what would happen if I drilled out the spot welds, so I left all that together and cut out the old bushings, and then used various types of lubrication and lots of grunting and groaning and liquid dishwashing soap and actually forced the bushings into place without taking apart the metal pieces.  It was not fun, and took a long time, but I got them in.  It was rough getting them put back on the ends of the sway bar as the hole was smaller than the bar.  I had to grind a little of the edge off the end of the sway bar (could have used a giant pencil sharpener type device!) to get the bushings started over the end of the bar.  It all went back together though.  I think it will be the last time I have to do it to my G.  I haven't rushed to do the same to my C yet, as I need to forget what a pain it was before attempting it again.

Bob,
I do not know how different the G sway bar is to the H sway bar, but I can explain how I did my H sway bars.

I bought the bushings from Jeff Carter.

With the sway bar  out of the car, I drilled out all the spot welds. Mine were held together with massive spot welds not rivets. (Rivets ought to be a lot easier.) I had huge holes from drilling.

After I got the metal parts off, I removed all the rubber bushings.I might add that I had to straighten the clamps I had drilled out and removed as I bent and twisted some as I removed 

I slid the inner bushings into place onto the bar. The holes I had to drill to remove the huge spot welds were so large that I could not use bolts to pull the parts together, so I used a lot of c clamps of various sizes. I was eventually able to get all the rubber in place, all the drilled out metal parts in place, and all the drilled out holes lines up and accessible to weld. I took that entire assembly with all the c clamps to a weld shop where they plug welded all the clamp, being careful not to burn the rubber. They did a nice job, carefully grinding the welds so they looked presentable.

John,
 
I believe there are some factory rivets that hold the bushings in.  How did you deal with that issue?  Grind them off and replace with bolt or somehow re-rivet?  The ones on my G are original and I should probably replace them at some point, but the rivets have put me off from tackling the job.
 
Thanks!
 
Bob

I bought one on eBay.  Was tough to install, but it worked.
