front SWAY bar/fuel system bleed

This weekend I am replacing fuel rail, Fuel injection seals, lower ball joints and suspension parts.
The question is: when I reinstall the front stabilizer bar, how do I gauge where it should be centered?
The current one is bent so it is getting replaced.. Maybe I should go visit So Cal?
Also, when the fuel rail refills with fuel, does the fuel system need to be bled or does the air in the system just get pushed through the cylinders?

Not sure but I have never had to bleed a fuel system. So I think the air will just be forced out the injectors.

Gordon - Are you referring to the front sway bar? Also, let me know how you make out with the fuel rail. If and when I get JXR944 pumping fuel I'd sure like to know what to expect.

The fuel rail will bleed itself, You will have to crank the car a couple of times to get it started.

Swaybar: On a stock setup, the bar should be self centering. It is usually easiest if you stick the ends of the pars in the control arm bushings first, and snug them a bit, then slip the bar (with center bushings installed) in the center brackets; then tighten everything up.

Swaybar: If you are installing new rubber bushings, I found it went easier if you make sure the swaybar is smooth and clean and put some talc on the inside of the new bushings.
