Changing the sway bar link on a Cadillac is an easy job that can be completed in about two hours.
To change Cadillac sway bar links, you will need a few basic tools. Instructions are the same for passenger and driver-side sway bar links.
- Clunking noise
- Rattling from the front end
- Loose suspension
- Poor handling
What you will need
- Jack up your Cadillac. Set the parking brake.
- Remove the front wheel. Place a jack stand under the vehicle to support it.
- Locate the sway bar link that you need to replace.
- Remove the 16mm bolt that connects the stabilizer bar to the upper control arm. In certain Cadillac models, the sway bar link may be bolted to the strut.
- Remove the nut that secures the sway bar link to the front strut.
- Remove the lower nut that secures the sway bar link to the sway bar.
- Install the new sway bar and torque the nuts according to the manufacturer's specification.
Front wheel alignment is not required if you are only replacing the sway bar links.
