I'm gonna take the center cap off, use a straight blade screwdriver, take that off. Use a 22-millimeter socket to take off the lug nuts. Take the wheel off. Now, you can do this without taking the wheel off. It just makes it a lot easier to take the wheel off. Now, this is a little bit rusty, so I'm gonna spray some rust penetrant right here and the nut up here.

Let that soak for a little bit. Now, use a 19-millimeter wrench and just hold the stud from spinning. Use an 18-millimeter socket to take this nut off. Slide that off. And for the top bolts, use an 18-millimeter wrench and an 18-millimeter socket. Take the nut off. This is getting pretty loose. Take that nut off, slide the bolt up. Let me just grab the link. Slide it out. You might need a pry bar to pry it up. There we go.

All right. Take the new link, slide it in position. If you have to bend the ears out a little bit, you can. And get the studs to go through the sway bar and slide the bolt through. Put the nut on. Get that started, the lower nut. Now, I'll tighten this nut up, and then tighten this upper nut to 48 foot-pounds and tighten the lower nut to 48 foot-pounds. Reinstall the wheel. Put the lug nuts on. Now, I'm going to torque these lug nuts to 140 foot-pounds in a star pattern to tighten the wheel down evenly. Then just go around again to double-check. Then reinstall the center cap.
