1999 SL2
Default Sway Bar Bushing Replacement

I was watching the richpin Sway Bar Bushing replacement video in anticipation of doing the job on my 1999 Saturn SL2. I purchased both sets of the Moog replacement ones from Rock Auto (lower control arm outer and inner bushings). However, in his video, he did not replace the bushing that connects to the subframe side. I purchased both sets of bushings and was wondering if anyone has ever replaced both and does it involve the need to press out the old bushings and press in the new ones? Thanks! Below are the rock auto links to the bushings:

Pretty sure it's a light press fit, not like hydraulic press fit but at least a 6" bench vice press fit.

The Moog K5307 is not a sway bar bushing anyway, it's a control arm bushing. Going by what RockAuto lists and will admit to a price on, the ACDELCO 21011235 is the only other front sway bar bushing available.

Thanks for the info! I also bought awhile back this part but haven't put it on yet. (https://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo...357264&jsn=331
) - Moog K8763. Is this the actual front sway bar bushing?
I'll let you know how I make out.

That is the split-type control arm to sway bar bushing which is much easier to install, you probably won’t need the metal insert. By the looks of it, the Moog K8436 is the press-in type control arm to sway bar bushing. Thirdly, the front sway bar to subframe bushing is a D shape with a split on one side so it can wrap around the sway bar without romoving the bar.

ACDELCO 21011235 is for the sway bar to cradle
MOOG K8436 is for the sway bar to control arm
MOOG K8763 is for the sway bar to control arm as well but a different material and includes the washers.

So when I got the Moog K8763, I only bought one box, and it came with two blue bushings, two washers, and one tube. Is that for only one side of the car? Have you or anyone on here installed the K8763 and can walk me through it? Is it similar to the process with the K8436 (standard black bushings seen in rich pin's video)? Appreciate the help!
