Four new self-locking nuts

Rachet and 17mm socket + 17mm wrench
Two new self-locking nuts
1. Place the rear of the car on jacks. No need to remove
2. Spray the links with lots of WD40 and let sit for awhile.
3. Remove the 17mm nut then remove the sway bar link, it is
going to be a little bit hard because it is rusty.
4. The trick to put the new one in place is to remove all
the rust (with a flat screw driver or a metal brush), attached
to the sway bar where the sway bar link was located.
Installation is the reverse of removal.
