91' loyale, my front suspension squeaks while goving over bumps etc. I had my girl friend pust up and down on the front while Ilistened for noise, it appears to be a sway bar bushing. Has anyone replaced this before? What does it take for a job like this? thanks

It should be a piece of cake - but make sure you put the entire front end up in the air (both sides) otherwise the forces of once side will tweak the swaybar and cause you a lot of headaches. If everything is just hanging free it should be no problem at all.

My bushings are cracked and crunchy too. I'd appreciate it if you could report the results if you do replace them.
