Chrysler Crossfire
Replacing sway bar bushings

This is one information page of my collection of what I have repaired on my Crossfire.

You should not do any repair on your car if you don't have enough experience and knowledge! You use this information at your own risk! Don't blame me if something goes wrong.


If you have a Mercedes SLK R170 with a 320 engine it's almost exact the same, but some of them have different diameters of the sway bar.

You have to work with critical parts when doing work on suspension. Only do this if you have enough knowledge !

3, Vacuum cleaning behind the fender:

Now when I have the car raised there are more things that I can do.

I have noticed that the tire rubber the inner fender inside the wheel house. It looks to be something behind it that pushes it out.

The screws that hold the inner fender are T25 torx. I only removed one of them and then bend the inner fender out so I can see what's behind.

What a lot of dirt, that can cause rust problems, I have to remove it with the vacuum cleaner.

I add an extender on the vacuum cleaner's hose, I want to reach all the way back behind the fender.

Started to vacuum clean at the bottom and use a knife to loosen the dirt so the vacuum cleaner can sucked in. I bend the panel slightly down with a screw driver, don't use to much force, the plastic panel can be broken.

Inside this panel was a huge collection of dirt, I'm very glad that I found this before the rust holes come. I do this on the left side too, but not very much dirt on that side. The inner fender also moved back after this and now the clearance against the wheel is better.

Jack point:

When I lower the car I noticed that the jack point on the left side was a bit loose. Earlier I installed a new one on the right side. And that one didn't fit very well before I cut the corners of the rubber gasket. Strange that this one have the same problem, it should be the original, you can have a look here how I did it: Jack point.

I also took apart the wheel hub and put new grease on the roller bearings, something I do every year. I had some problem with these roller bearings earlier, roller bearings.
