    Anti-Roll bar

    Got some post today


    The before


    The during


    and the after



    Steps
    - loosen and remove first top nut on anti-roll bar ( arb )
    - loosen and remove second nut on arb
    - remove the washers and top rubber noting the order
    - loosen bottom nut that bolts to the lower a-arm
    - jack up arb with a bottle jack until the arb clears the shaft
    - swivel the shaft out and replace the bottom rubber - I actually removed the whole thing
    - swivel back the shaft and slowly release the arb back onto the threaded area
    - put other stuff back in order - noting to compress the rubbers for about 5 turns only ( if you keep turning the first nut you will over compress the rubbers and make them fail early ) and then doing the up the second nut tightly.
    - clean up


    Tools required

    14mm spanner
    14mm socket and ratchet
    4 poly replacements


    Time

    My first time took 25 minutes in total for both sides including packing tools away

    Wow!

    Just got back from a short drive.

    I have to say I never thought those small rubbers make such a big difference. No more 'clunking' and the steering is much sharper and more responsive.

    It's a 20 minute cheap job and makes a world of a difference to the steering. I can almost think it handles better than the jetta!

    I have added simple instructions above on how to do them.

    Now to find the loose bolt on SWAMBO's seat

    EDIT - found the seat problem - The teeth wasn't hooking the adjustment catches on the rails causing the seat to have play. A slight bend on the teeth solved the problem.

    Now the pajero is rattle free! Gives the car a real good quality feel.

    Thanks for uploading so many pictures, very helpful to other people fixing the same type of cars.

    Where did you order these bushings from, and how much was the shipping? I need to get some for my Suzuki SJ.

    I ordered from milner off-road

    They charged me 3.50 for carriage and the marked the value on the package as 50 so I had to pay R55 tax

    Anyway it's still not too bad but had I known the extra costs I would just buy poly from the hardware store and turn and cut my own.

    On the other hand it is nice to just bolt in ready made parts.

    Lots of stuff can be sourced on fleabay but make sure the seller supports registered shipping otherwise about a third of your orders will end up in Nigeria. ( Make sure of the total cost before buying - some things can be had for very cheap but others not - shop around )

    Thanks, have been looking around on e-bay and various other import sites. Certain genuine parts from the dealers are unjustifiably expensive.

    Wrong! You should never have sold THOSE Pajero's! Both were excellent vehicles. I almost made the same mistake recently but luckily got my head straight. If I can just sort my ABS kickback problem!! Maybe I must bring it to you and leave it there for a month to tinker :-) , just to get you back in the Pajero spirit!

    No - come to think of it, that will be a bad idea as you might not give it back to me! :-)

    Default Changed my mind

    Marius, I think you have just changed my mind regarding selling my LWB. Still between two fires though.
    I was getting annoyed with the repairs on it but yes, I love it and maybe she will be fine again one day when I get her back from the mechanic.

    I was going to get get rid of it once she is back home. Lets see how she behaves after the engine rebuild

    Phenomenal thread this.. major kudos to the 4e's..

    Thanks very much Marius for all this.. I'm light years away from having even the slightest bit of such knowhow - but I truly look forward to being able to mission oneday!

    Thanks again for all your hard work documenting all this - may it stay in the digital world as long as the Pajero's will in the real one!

    That pajero is long gone. I have a touareg thread now worth over 100 pages.

    Thanks for the kind words.
