Jay, sorry it took you three days. When I installed mine I had the help of my brother-in-law. I would not tried without help as they are heavy. The two of us did it in a couple hours. Actually, we were surprised how easy it was

I just installed my Hellwig rear sway bar today on my E450 Forester 3011ds.
Took about 4 hours alone. Hardest part was getting under the rug with it sitting on the wheels. I did use the leveling Jack's to raise it some and put some 2Xs under the tires. Gained a little room.
Second hardest thing was holding that heavy piece of steel up with one hand while bolting it in place with the others. Got my measurements set on the hanging rods and torqued it down.
Ended up with 2 extra washers. Not sure why. Got 6 but job only called for 4.
Will drive it later this week to get inspection sticker.
*Anyone need a stock E450 anti-sway bar? Lol

As I said this job is too hard for someone to do it alone in my opinion due to the position and the weight of the new bars.

I did mine with a few cheap ratchet straps and thin ropes. You let the lifting be done with the straps.

Well the bars are installed and i took it for a test drive but did not hok up car but there is a very noticable improvment in cornering and sticking to the road.Hope they perform well when towing but if not will go for trac bar,like i said they are a bit pricey but i am not going to take on 6000 mile trip having to wrestle it all the way.,we will see
