Sway Bar Link Torque

88 560SL 160,000+ miles

I had a cracked front sway bar bracket and have decided to replace all the rubber along with it. (its snowing, what else do I have to do?)

Do the sway bar link bolts have a proper torque setting?

Thanks!

John

The torsion bar has two holding brackets below the radiator, and a connecting link on each end. Each bracket has two threaded fasteners, when removed will allow the rubber mount to be removed, as it is split to allow this. The ends of the torsion bar are connected to long bolt-like links, These links connect to the lower control arm of the suspension on bottom, and to the torsion bar on top. At each connecting point of the links are two rubber ring donuts. So to replace all, you need two rubber bar mounts, and eight rubber ring donuts. I was able to purchase the end links as a kit with a new link bolt, donuts, washers and nuts. You may want to apply some silicone grease on the rubber components.
