Hi, I have a 94 camry. The rubber bushings in the upper dogbone stabilizer/mount are pooched. I got a new dogbone, but am not sure how to replace it. Looks like it is held in place with two single through bolts. Do I just remove the bolts, drop in the new dogbone in, and put the bolts back, or is there more to this job than meets the eye? Does the engine need to be supported before removing and replacing the dogbone? Is aligning the new dogbne difficult? Thanks, Glenn

Just pull the two bolts, replace, install bolts and done. No need to support the engine, they part self aligns. Easiest job ever. :)

You need to remove four bolts -- including the two on the "No. 2" engine bracket.

All get a 14mm socket.

After you install the new part, put the bolts back in only to 'snug' and back off slightly. Then tighten them from front to back. (They are numbered in the manual, but it's just front-to-back.)

This procedure is to avoid pre-loading the rubber in the bushing.

Do NOT use this similar torque spec -- it is for the bolts that hold the cast bracket to the engine block. You remove this when changing the timing belt.

"avoid pre-loading the rubber in the bushing"
+1 on that advice. i didn't undo the mount bolts when i put in the next to last one and it broke the rubber after just about a year.,
