These swaybar links are getting old!
I got one out just fine, but the other one, now that is a different story! The damn bolt at the top twisted off, so then I had nothing (threads) to beat on to get the damn thing out, so I lop it off with the Sawsall. Now I have this tapered shaft stuck in the hole, basically flush on both sides. I grind them down smooth hopeing that I can find something to punch it out with, but that does not work. I drill a 1/4" hole on it hopeing that will weaken it, but that blows too. Now I have a 1/4" hole that is not exactley centered. To the best of my ability in figuring out the hole size I think it is a 15/32". Finally my question, If I drill a 15/32" hole which will be close to center, but not perfect will I still be ok? If I do that, which will leave a little of the swaybar shaft which may then fall out and make the hole a little bigger, will I still be ok? I do not know if this part has a tight tolerance or not? Sorry for all of the questions, but I thought this would go alot smooter! I changed my spark plugs yesterday and that went perfect! I do have some mechanical abilities, but this one got a little out of control for some reason. Thanks, Scooby
