Default bushing replacement 94 camry


Hello,

My trusty 94 camry turned 200,000 miles the other day so I figured it
was time to do some maintenance.

I replaced the rear sway bar bushings which was very little trouble and
now I'm contemplating the front ones.

They seem to be a little more difficult. In fact, I'm having a hard time
finding them, and a manual that I have says to remove tires, fender, tie
rod ends, steering knuckles, etc.

Is all that necessary? If not can someone give me the steps to do this?

Thanks a lot!

John

It's a lot of work when you have to remove the tie rod ends with
pullers. Were the bushings squeaking?

=========================================
You need to remove the front tires, not the fender, but two 10mm bolts
holding a fender apron cover. You do not need to remove the tie rod
ends or steering knuckle to replace stabilizer bar bushings.
Clearance is a bit more limited than with the rear, but the concept is
the same. You just unbolt the covers and replace the split bushings.
Really quite simple.
Just lift the car, properly support it on jack stands and use a shop
light to see more clearly.
It would be handy to have "Gearwrenches" because you won't be able to
turn the wrench very far before having to reposition it.
This is not a difficult job. Just take your time.
Silicone grease will help keep the new stabilizer bar bushings quiet. A
small tube of "dielectric" tune up grease is the same thing.
