oh boy.....

Well after a rainy night under a tarp my oilpan is back on and everything is put back on ..almost and the car runs like new. Though during my process of removing the front suspention i found 2 stripped bolts. One on the a arm that goes to the body and another that goes from the swaybar to the body.....gotta fix those.

But, my real question is ...i bought all new bushings but, i cant get them on! I cant even get the rubber part on without the clamp on it. The end ones go on fine but the inner ones are b*tches. I noticed that when i was looking at some suspention parts they read 951.***.... like the a arms and other misc parts. Could I have the wrong size bushings and how can i measure my sway bar. the front one seems much bigger than the rear one ..but thats how it should be right?

Peel the front middle mounts open further, apply soapy water to the sway bar then slide and remount the bar.

No, they were the right bushings ...but silicone spray, the ky jelly of cars helped a lot...and it took about 1 hour to get all the bushings on but the car is solid as a rock again.
