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).

Comments about Dorman - OE Solutions Sway Bar Kit:

This seems to be the best replacement sway bar out there. Be careful with installation. The sway bar is not an exact duplicate of the OEM original. BE sure to note that ""Driver Side Bottom" is printed on the sway bar otherwise you may attempt to install it backwards. Some say you have to lower the sub frame to get the old one out and the new one in, depends on the vehicle. I installed this on a 99 Buick Century from the driver's side and did not have to lower the sub frame but I did have the lower control arm and the tie rod end removed because I was also replacing other parts. If you do lower the sub frame you may have to disconnect the steering mechanism or it will come apart in the steering column if you lower it too far. Google for further help. I was originally going to replace with a junk yard part but I figured it wasn't worth the hassle and the fact that the OEM originals are prone to rusting out and breaking.

        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.

                  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.

                  A:

                  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.
