Hi Steve. There are two bushings at each end of the sway bar, on the front
and backside of the lower control arm. All the same bushings. I too was
concerned about getting the bar out, but I put the car on ramps, so the full
weight of the car was on the wheels. Removed all the bolts and nuts, and the
sway bar fell out of the control arms. Putting it back in was as easy. Did
you jack your car up when working on it? That may be why you had a hard time

Just ordered the 4 obvious rubber bushings for the sway bar yesterday
from Anderson's (local). Besides the two near the middle and the two at the
outer ends of the sway bar what are the other 2 am I missing? Did you have
any special tricks for getting the outers back in? I replaced the bushings
mentioned on my '86 5000 last summer and it took quite a bit of persuation
to get the outer end lined up (using a bottle jack and loosening up the
outer middle bolt). The 200 has a thicker tie rod .. looks to be even more

I'm considering a chip upgrade for my 91 200TQA. Probably IA stage III.
Question is concerning the distributor rotor. Sounds like the narrow rotor
is hard to find. Is this really neccessary with this upgrade. What's the
lists experience been.
On a seperate note, I changed the sway bar bushings (all six) today.
Twas quite easy, and I have to say, it's a noticeable improvment. Less sway
and less thumping on rough roads. Car is at 99.8 k mi.
