1978-1982 Ford Fairmont Front Sway Bar Link Kit Pair

Part Details

  • Location: Front
  • Quantity: Pair

  • New

Your front sway bar helps your vehicle's suspension performance. The main purpose is to reduce body roll when going through a turn at speed. Although the sway bar itself is not a wearable item the end links and bushings are. Most commonly the rubber bushings dry and crack over time and will eventually split and fall off.

Specifications:

  • Comes as a PAIR
    • Fits both LH (Driver Side) & RH (Passenger Side) FRONT
  • Includes:
    • (2) - Links (Bolts)
    • (2) - Sleeves
    • (8) - Rubber Bushings
  • Direct replacements
  • Built to strict quality control standards

If you can hear your sway bar rattling on a bumpy road it may be time to replace the end links. These sway bar links are direct replacement parts that fit and function as the originals did.

Lifetime Warranty

  1. Diagnosis (1:10 in the video)
    • The stabilizer link can break and the bushings can wear out.
    • A good way to tell if the problem is the stabilizer link is if there is a rattling that stops when you go around turns.
  2. Remove the stabilizer link (1:48 in the video)
    • Apply penetrating oil to the link.
    • Use a 14mm socket and ratchet to unbolt the stabilizer link.
    • Secure the upper part of the stabilizer link with an adjustable wrench to help get the traction needed to work the nut loose.
  3. Install the new stabilizer link (3:35 in the video)
    • Thread the new link into place
    • Put all your bushings and washers in place.
    • Make sure everything is snugged into their places in the stabilizer bar and the control arm
    • Use a jack to push the nut on to get it started.
    • Repeat the removal and installation process up to this point on the other side before tightening the stabilizer link nut up all the way.
    • If the old link is stuck or broken, you can use a Sawzall to cut it out.
    • Take great care to make sure you don’t damage any other parts if you do.
