Got a floating feeling driving down the road or in turns? Check your sway bar end links. These little guys are an easy fix, but can cause serious driving instabilities.
To check simply look under the car at the control arms. Follow to where the sway connects to the control arm and check to see if the bushings are crack, broken or in some cases missing completely.

To replace simply unbolt the old links (one on each end in our case). remove the old link (lay out the old pieces if all there so you can repeat the pattern. Then replace with the new one. Tighten down the links to torque specs or if not supplied, you want the bushing fairly flattened but not to the point the washer is cutting into the link.
As always i suggest replacing both sides, just to stop any inconsistencies in ride handling from newer bushing on one side.
