Sway Bar Links & Jack Stands

- when you jack up the escape, where do you position the jack since the jack stands are placed where the owners manual tells you to place the jack?

- i tried removing the nuts from links while on the ground but the studs just spun, i have seen people say to use an allen wrench to hold the stud, but i don't see where. the moog replacements i bought have a hex on the inside of the stud but the OEM replacements currently on the escape don't

Re: Sway Bar Links & Jack Stands

If it doesn't have a hex to hold / stop it turning , you may need to cut the nuts off or burn them off .Quite common on a number of cars .Sometimes on some you can force arm off and try and hold ball joint from turning with grips , but easier / quicker just to burn off.

P.s
Some types of links had a couple of flats for a spanner / shifter / wrench to hold .
