Someone correct me but I believe you have to pull the subframe. Not sure in parts. Sway bar, end links, nit sure what else...

You at least need to lower it I know but I will probably just get a ship to do it anyways since I will need an alignment after I just want to make sure I have all the parts but I will definentally be doing a progress rear sway bar myself

Good plan! I would go to a shop too... I can't justify breaking or misaligning something by doing it myself...

any reason you want to swap out the front sway bar? Honestly not worth it for the front, rear is worth it. It's better to get new shocks/springs and braces rather than dropping/lowering the subframe to replace the front bar.

I did it to my ‘04.

I did this a few months after putting the progress bar in rear. This was all prior to Koni’s.

To OP, yes to the new bushings/brackets, and endlinks, as well as drilling out LCA a lil, from 10mm-12mm. (Not postive on the mm size of endlinks, been awhile). Then alignment. You don’t have to drop the whole subframe, just loosen the front, then lower the rear.
