I had a used 1999 that came from a salt-rich environment (Connecticut) and had one bolt shear off of each of the sway-bar mounts, despite the liberal application of penetrating oil over a period of days. I wan't in the mood to drop the sub-frame to drill out the bolts, as this was the first 9-5 I owned and was unsure if that was possible with just a floor jack. I ended up chiseling off the welded-in nuts and slipping in a standard nut with a new bolt. The chisel had to fit through a hole in the frame to get to the welded nut and it was difficult to get a good angle.
All in all, an unpleasant afternoon and one I have not repeated on my other 9-5s. I might not even try if the sub-frame was off the car.
