Before replacing anti-roll bar bushings check all six subframe bushings - if the are shot then have it done together with subframe off the car - it's much easier. Also check carefully the whole subframe for rust.

Bolts #18 tend to break if rusted, and if they break the subframe will have to go off the car to fix it. I've broken one, fortunately with the subframe next to the car. So, soak them a few times with your favourite rust solving agent (for hours not minutes).

There will be rust on the sway-bar below bushings and on the ends - it's a good time to have it powder coated - coating has to be glossy and hard, as the bar rotates in the bushings, so DIY painting usually is not effective (paint surface too soft -> no paint in a short time below bushings -> rust).

Fixings #17 will be rusted too - you can buy new ones or get them painted together with sway bar.

Bushing #16 is produced in four sizes - you can measure anti roll bar diameter or check it in EPC for your car.

Lubricate bolts with antiseize during assembly.

Lubricate the bushings lightly with "Molykote 33 Medium" to avoid squeaks (WIS recommendation).

OEM supplier for link #19 was Lemforder, Meyle has a reinforced version (they call it HD) if you want.

Here the official procedure:
