Default Rear Sway bar Stabilizer bushing replacement

Later this month I am planning on replacing the rear bushings in a 2008 XKR SC.

I would like to know if it is in any way possible to do this without having to lower the rear subframe (as indicated by the service manual) ?

Any input or advice would be greatly appreciated - perhaps Brutal may chime in if he happens to see this ;-)

Thanking you all in advance,

Phil

Which bushings specifically? If the ones indicated in your thread title then new links with bushes prefitted can be had new for under $30 and take minutes to install.

Actually $20 for OEM ZF

Remove 2 nuts and old stabilizer link and reverse with new.

If if he is referring to the sway bar and not the stabilizer, itís a little trucker but can be done. I used poly bushes on mine from Powerflex.

the rear sway bar / stabilizer bar (same thing) bushings have to be replaced from the TOP of the subframe. Very tight and tricky to get to. There is no issue with locating the replacements which are indeed very cheap.
I do not want to have to drop the subframe.
