How much does swayBar installation cost?

How much does swayBar installation cost? How long does it take? I like to drive down to PerformanceNissan buy and install at the same time.

Re: How much does swayBar installation cost?

I started to install my Stillen sway bars by myself
(with a buddy) and quickly realized I was over my head.
So I took the car down to my local Firestone. They installed
them for $89.

On a lift with the proper power tools, it shouldn't take a shop more than 45 minutes to an hour. On your back, it shouldn't take more than an hour per axle. 1/2" drive sockets and a breaker bar will help a lot.

Re: How much does swayBar installation cost?

If you have the right tools (impact wrench, breaker bar, decent socket wrench set with open end sockets) and a lift (or 2 ton jack stands and a a floor jack), it should take less than an hour. The nuts are pretty tight (especially the hangers) that if you don't have the right tools, can lead to some back strain and vulgar profanity.

Average labor costs are about $80/hour. I did my own install with help from a couple of friends. If you don't have the right tools, I would just take it in.

i did it myself...

while I'm pretty good with the tools, it did take me longer due to space limitations. The G35 just doesn't have really good jack-up points. I had to do one end at a time and then turn the car around to do the other end. Taking the bolts off is relatively easy...just have a breaker bar available, 10,14(?),17 mm sockets/extension, and 17mm open end for the end link nut. Having a compact Makita 3/8 driver also makes it quicker on the pan removal.
