    I finally trashed the bushings on the front sway bar of my 97 FZJ80. When installing the new ones, do I need to jack up the vehicle or can I just crawl underneath, lube the inside of the bushings and put them in ? Should the split in the bushing face the front or back of the vehicle ? Any and all pointers are appreciated. Is this as simple as it looks ?

    Thank you

    It's pretty much as simple as it looks. You might have to fight the torsion of the sway bar hare and there, but it's not too bad.
