Default 1995 Front Sway Bar End Links bushing replacement questions

Any tricks to share ?
I have done the back, getting the Poly bushing back in was easy 3 of 4.
The last one did not want to go in.
Is the front under tension. Do these come out with ease, or a fight.
Thanks in advance !!

How are you removing and replacing the bushings? I used my tabletop hydraulic press when doing my 95 coupe and had no problems at all.

Is your trouble with removal, or installation? I replaced all on my 94 with poly. Be sure to use lots of the supplied lube. Installing them was easy using a vice and even a set of channel locks on a few. As far as removing the old rubber bushings, if mine didnít come out by pressing them out, I used a small drill bit and drilled them out. Worked like a charm👍🏻

I did the end links on the back with bar on the car.
I was just checking to see if the front was a similar
job. Is the front bar under tension ?

It's about the same as the rear. As long as you disconnect both ends, bar should not be loaded.
