Got around to doing this today before vacation. Steps to install.

1. Remove both front wheels
2. Disconnect end links
3. Removing bushings and brackets.
4. Remove 1 tie rod end.
5. Twist the stock bar out one end. Make sure the ends of the bar are above the tie rods.
6. Put in the new bar
7. Tighten bushings and brackets.
8. Tighten end links.

I could not reuse the poly end links because they were to small. Stock for now. Car is much more neutral now. I have a 25mm rear sway. Haven't really gotten to rip into her yet. It's a bar and the car feels stiffer. No engine lifting is needed on the 3.6. Hope this helps fellow members.
