Sway Bar Bushings
#1
Do I need to take the weight off of the front end in order to replace the front sway bar bushings? Reason I ask is I'd like to do it next time I change my oil. They are right there in plain sight.Two bolts each and they are off. Or do I need to jack it up and break out the jack stands. Really don't want to do that if I don't have to. Thanks.

I did mine while siting on the ground if I remember correctly. As long as the front end is not articulated, there should be no torsional stress on the bar, and it should be in a neutral state. Buy some good urethane bushings. It will make it feel a little firmer.

Thank you. I did the job without having to jack her up on stands. I first purchased the Moog bushings from Advance Auto parts about $15 for the pair. When I installed the first one I did not like the looks of the bushing. All buldged out. Noticed the open on the originals was located in the corner. Returned the Moogs and purchased the Nissan bushings at the dealer. Only $14 for the pair and yes much better fit. Thank you for your help.
