Default How to Install Install Progress Rear Sway Bar (RSB)

How to's : Installing Progress Rear Sway Bar


Alright, so I installed my progress rear sway bar today. I thought I'd make a write up out of it, just in case anyone wanted to do it themselves.

Here we go...

Tools Needed: (NOTE: Socket is size 14 & make sure it's a long socket, not short)
Click the image to open in full size.

1) Jack up the car from BOTH sides.

2) Unbolt the outer part of the sway bar first, since the sway bar is stable. There's 1 bolt on each side

Click the image to open in full size.

3) Unbolt the middle section

Click the image to open in full size.
Click the image to open in full size.

Now you should have 3 bolts total from each side and the middle section brackets

Click the image to open in full size.

4) Wiggle the old sway bar out and be careful. Take your time and try twisting the bar to avoid pulling any lines with you. NOTE: Notice the way the sway bar is facing before you put it in.

Click the image to open in full size.
Click the image to open in full size.

5) After you put in the NEW sway bar, connect all bolts in place, but DO NOT tighten anything yet. NOTE: Do the middle section first to hold up the bar because it's heavier than stock.

Click the image to open in full size.
Click the image to open in full size.

Click the image to open in full size.

6) Once every bolt is in place, tighten the outside bolts then do the middle section. And now you're done.

Enjoy the better handling. :bike:

Nice write-up...thanks Craig/Rani.

I'll be doing mine this week hopefully. My Racingline FSTB should be in, so I can get my suspension all done at the same time.

This was a super-easy mod! When I put a rear sway bar in my Taurus...what a pain in the nuts to feed the sway bar up under the chassis. With the Maxima, it was very easy.

I know the last post was a while ago but when you upgrade the sway bar wouldn't be a good idea to upgrade the end links as well?

Didn't Racingline have an issue with their endlinks? Did they ever resolve it?
