Anti Roll Sway Bar Drop Link Replacement Vauxhall Opel
Skip Intro 5:07 I discovered you can change these drop links without jacking up or removing the wheels. It took me about an hour as the extra time it takes undoing the nuts is saved by not removing the wheels. Turn the steering on full lock and you can get to the nuts while laying on the floor. Remove the top joint first as it helps with removing the bottom one. I found replacing the nearside easier probably because I'm right handed. I bought a pair of droplinks off eBay for £11. But they don't look as strong as the original Vauxhall ones. I'll see how long these last and put the results here. This is quite an easy job and stops that annoying knocking noise. Although this was done on a 2008 1.7CDTi Corsa it should be the same for most of the Vauxhall range





Honda Accord Sway Bar Bushings Replacement
A fastener by fastener tutorial for replacing the sway bar end bushings and frame bushings on 94-97 Accords. The common symptom of a failed sway bar bushing is a clunk or knocking sound when going over bumps. When one or more of the donut bushings crack metal to metal contact between the sway bar and the lower control arm occurs which causes the noise. For 1994-1997 Accords the bushings are sold separately and are Honda part number 51314-SM4-020. You will need a total of 8 (4 per side). In the video I say you can use penetrating oil on the frame bushings to make them slide on easier. I misspoke. Do NOT use petroleum based lubricants (such as penetrating oil) on the rubber and only use silicone based lubricants. Petroleum based lubes will harm the rubber silicone won't.

Regular Oil vs Synthetic Oil -EricTheCarGuy
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ Lately I've been seeing a lot of posts over at the forum talking about switching to synthetic oil with less than ideal results. Instead of typing out the same answer over and over I thought I would make this short video to help explain my experiences with synthetic oil. I'm not saying synthetic oil is bad, in fact it has it's place but my opinion is that place is not in your 15 year old Toyota or Chevy. The reasons as explained in the video are that synthetic has different flow characteristics and can actually cause your engine to leak oil and run noisy. It's perfectly OK to run conventional oil of the correct viscosity and change it on a regular basis. You don't need to spend the extra money on synthetic oil if your owners manual does not call for it. I look forward to your comments on this.

Worn Sway Bar Bushing sound
This is what a worn front sway bar bushing sounds like from the cabin in a mazdaspeed3 going through bumps. The thuding sound is the sound it makes. To verify its the bushing, simply jack both front wheels (or back wheels) off the ground and grab on to the sway bar around the wheel well and start shaking the sway bar. There should be no play. Dont use the end links to check for play. Another way to be more certain is going through uneven bumps should make the sound more pronounced then even bumps straight on (going through a speed bump straight on) In my case the front driver side was shaking more than the passenger side. You must jack both sides, jacking one side is useless because the sway bar will be under load and shaking it wouldnt be obviously evident. After I replacing to an stiffer aftermarket bushing, total silence! Car has 54k KM on it but often driven at the track.
