The factory sway bar is a hollow tube with each end crimped flat then drilled through where the links attach. One half of a crimped end had broken off. This sway bar is not hollow and is shaped almost identical to the factory sway bar. It is stenciled "drivers side down" on one side to set the correct orientation for installation. However, this would have the sway bar installed exactly opposite the way the factory bar was installed. Each end of the bar turns forward and then has a curve that either dips down or up depending on which way you install. I went ahead and tried it the way it was stenciled just to make sure. In this orientation the ends curve up. When you put on the links to the control arms and isolators that attach to the frame, the sway bar interferes with the tie rods. Yes, this is when the suspension is unloaded but the factory bar was installed so the ends dip down and miss the tie rods. I installed the sway bar just like the factory sway bar. Everything lines up and travels as it should so I think the part was stenciled incorrectly. It is obvious that the curved portion at each end is there to create clearance with the tie rods. Cost me 30 minutes because it's not easy to get the sway bar in and out by yourself.

This solid bar (33mm diameter) is over 2X stiffness of the OEM hollow 30mm bar. Result: outside front tire takes the brunt of cornering loads; howling around on-ramps, etc. Noticeably rougher over potholes. Tolerable on an old car that you're just trying to keep running, but you will be disappointed if you appreciated the way your car handled before. On my '01 Impala I was able to sneak the new bar in after disconnecting both outer tie rod ends (did NOT need to touch the subframe bolts).

Worked great. Included new bushing, bolts and links. Had to drop passenger side sub frame to get it in but not bad. Hard to get sway bar bushing bolts out, limited turning and head room.

      This sway bar was much heavier than the original equipment. The car repaired has 97000 miles and the linkage between the sway bar and suspension yoke is what broke. We had to remove a rotor and disconnect one tie rod end to get the old bar out. Overall a simple project.

            Comments about Dorman - OE Solutions Sway Bar Kit:

            My original Sway bar ears were broken on both ends because of salt and tube was hollow and open on the ends.
            Need to drop engine cradle in order to remove and reinstall sway bar on Buick Lacrosse. Bolts were extremely tight and 2 needed to be cut out. What should have been 2 hour job turned into a full day you don't have the right tools like a breaker bar and 90 degree impact would be helpful. Couple of bolts came out with a saw-zall or a torch. Ordered on line pickup at store close by and got the best price of all the auto suppliers in the area that carried exact same part. This is a forged sway bar without openings to corroded and break. Be aware of removal and locations of all connections. Mark piece for proper install as the differences are small if upside down. Mine had a description stating drivers side down. Once I got everything out it installed quickly with all bolts and rubber pieces needed for completion. As always be safe and use jack stands before entering under car. Take pics before disassembly to help if you forget how the they attached to the control arm.

                Perfect fit for my 2002 GM minivan. I was very happy that it came with all new bolts and hardware for everything as mine were rusted and worn. Like others have said, this is a solid steel bar unlike the factory piece that is hollow (which is why it cracked and broke). With speedperks and the coupon code, I got an excellent price as well. I will only shop at advance auto parts, best prices and the counter people are great too!

                          Hi Spec, I'm glad to assist you. To replace the sway bar on your 2004 Buick Century, you have to lower the rear of the frame to get it all out. The wheels should be jacked up off the ground and the jack stands under the body seem behind the front tires. A jack is then placed under the back part of the frame/cradle and then take the bolts out and lower the jack down and the cradle will lower to gain access to the sway bar. Place a jack on the frame which is under the Power steering rack and pinion to remove the 2 bolts that hold the back of the cradle on. For further assistance, I have emailed the installation instruction to replace the sway bar on your 2004 Buick Century to your email address.

                          I'm happy to help, Ted! The bolts may or may not be easy to remove on your vehicle. This depends on the vehicle's condition, where it's driven and how it's cared for. I see you are in the rust belt. Vehicles in the rust belt may be more difficult to work on parts that are exposed to the elements, especially snow and salt. A rust penetrant such as WD-40 Specialist Rust Penetrant (Part No. 300004) or PB B'Laster (Part No. 16-PB) may help with any stuck bolts on the sway bar.

                          You may also want to purchase a repair manual for your 2000 Oldsmobile Silhouette 3.4L V6 for detailed removal and installation instructions, Haynes Part No. 38036.

                          This would be for people who wrench on their cars frequently and have enough tools to complete the Job.
                          Depending on the vehicle, it is often required to drop the rear bolts and lower the engine cradle enough to pull the bar out. If you don't have a good set of Jack stands, a Large floor jack, and metric tools, you may not want to tackle this project.

                          Certainly. You might have to cut or twist off some rusted nuts, but they are junk anyway. Easier than a brake job.
