Default Rear Stabilizer Bar Bushing Replacement

I have an '06 SL. I have been noticing a lot of sideways motion when driving over bumpy roads. Unfortunately a common occurrence in the DC area. I was inspecting the rear suspension and saw space between the stabilizer bar and the busing that holds the bar to the frame. I can push the sway bar side to side with my hand.

I got replacement bushings and was trying to remove the 14mm nuts holding the bushing clamps to the frame but was not able to get a socket on the nut closer to the rear of the car due to interference with the rear lower link.

Does anyone have any tricks for getting at this nut?

Default Re: Rear Stabilizer Bar Bushing Replacement

I used a 1/2" impact with a deep well socket. Was able to reach them on my 04.

I had a similar issue as you, but found out my cause was a tire that would leak and become low (couldn't really tell it was low by looking at it till it was less than 10psi).
