Hi, I'm Mike from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and next time you need parts for your vehicle, think of 1AAuto.com. Thanks.

In this video we're going to show you how to replace the front stabilizer link or one of the front stabilizer links. We show you the passenger's side and the driver's side is the same procedure. With stabilizer links, you'll hear a rattling and sometimes you'll know that it's a stabilizer link if you enter a slight curve and then the rattling stops. That's usually a good sign that the stabilizer link is bad. What you'll need is a new stabilizer link from 1A Auto. If you're going to replace one, it's probably a good idea just to replace just them both. Usually if one is getting worn out, the other one is getting ready to go. Jack and jack stands, I did put a star. You can do this without jacking the vehicle up but it does make it quite a bit more difficult just to get in there in the angles and stuff. You'll need two 18mm wrenches and you'll need an 18mm socket and ratchet and some penetrating oil.

As you can see here, I've got the vehicle raised up and I'm removing the lug nuts with my impact wrench. If you don't have an impact wrench, you want to start with the vehicle on the ground. Loosen the lug nuts with a 19mm socket and breaker bar or your tire iron. Then raise and support the vehicle and remove the lug nuts and wheel the rest of the way. You can see here I'm kicking the tire. That's basically just a way . if your tire or your wheel is a little bit frozen on because of the aluminum, just give it some good kicks and break it loose and then you can remove the tire.

We're going to start by putting some lubricant on the ends of the bolts so that the nuts actually come off from the front and the back side. We have an 18mm wrench and an 18mm socket to the top of the end link. The 18-mm wrench goes on the back; the socket goes on the front and then you've just got to use your muscles to tear it apart. I'm just going to speed up here as we remove that nut the rest of the way. Now, we can just pull the end link out. Once we remove the end link from the strut, you can go down to the bottom and you can start working on the bottom bolt. On the bottom of the end link there's not enough room to get a big ratchet like this in, so you have to use a wrench on both sides. Ideally a ratcheting wrench would be great but when in a pinch, you can just use two regular wrenches. Put an 18mm on one side and an 18mm on the other just like the top and you just break it loose. Unfortunately there is really no easier way. You just go 1/16 to 1/8 of a turn at a time, and eventually you get that nut off.

We'll put the bottom one in first. I'm just going to speed it up here as I tighten up those two nuts. They should be tightened up to around 55 to 60 foot-pounds but you don't have to torque them. This is not an integral component. Just as long as you get them nice and tight with the wrenches or the socket and ratchet.
Put your wheel back on and start all your lug nuts just by hand first, and then, while the vehicle is still in the air, just preliminarily tighten them with your socket and ratchet or as I'm doing, with my impact wrench. Now, again, use your torque wrench and you want to tighten your lug nuts between 95 and 100 foot-pounds and use a star pattern as you tighten.
