    I didn't see any illustration that showed sway bar bushings so I would have to conclude no.

    Think about all that weight placed right on the nose of your car. Does that sound like it would be a good thing?

    Jacked the jack thread

    put your stands under the lower control arms. Put them right in the curved part by where they mount...the stands sit in there perfectly.
