Sway bar links?

Ok so I assume there's "two" sway bar links - one on either side. Just was under the rover and noticed there's only one on the drivers side. The one for the passenger side is missing completely. The nuts are still there but the link is gone. I've replaced these on Saabs before by jacking the front up letting the front wheels hang. Is replacement on the rover the same?

It's pretty straightforward, yes. I started by jacking up the body but for clearance when reinstalling I did need to lower the body a bit and then jack it back up. I didn't need to even get the wheels completely off the ground. About a half hour job.

I replaced mine last year. I also found one link was broken like yours. However I didn't notice any effect on the handling on the highway!

You don't have to jack the car up. You only need to raise the EAS to have a bit more working room to slacken the nuts off.
Then put the EAS back to normal ride height to knock the links out - the bolts in the sway bar links only line up with the holes when at normal ride height.

I am in the process of making detachable sway bar links for off road use. The links have to be disconnected/reconnected at normal ride height.


Sorry - I'm on coils so i had to use the jack! Sorry for myself I guess! :)
