I have a 2007 Patrol 3.0 Auto. The tie bar swivel end at the lower of the rear sway bar stabilizer clutch is loose and squeaky and needs replacing. Looking at the workshop manual suggests that is is screwed to the actuating arm and should be replaceable. However, I cannot find a kit for this and specialist 4x4 dealers and the main dealer point to having to replace the whole clutch unit - over here around £1000 and not worth that cost for the use it probably will not be put to! Has anyone had this problem and found a solution to just replace the swivel end?

Please post a pic of what you are referring to, that would make it much easier to answer.

OK that clarifies, sorry I'm unfamiliar with that system, maybe someone else can help.

I thought that's what you meant, but unfortunately the rear sway bar release was never available on the GU in Australia. One of our overseas members might be able to help. It's probably easier to replace it with a fixed length link like the Australian models have, plenty of aftermarket ones available here.

Everything I've seen on these says they're not very reliable, not serviceable and very expensive to replace. I think most people rip them out and replace them with a solid link when they fail.
