Ok.

Forgot to reply back.

apparently my right lower control arm is gone, my stabilizer link as well.

also there are two bushings that i would call stabilizer bar bushings. i have tried locating these parts online but i think i am using the wrong name for them.

Also does anyone know how hard this is to do?

Lower control arm:

Rear sway bar & links:

Rear sway bar end links are easy to do. I changed mine this summer.

Lower control arm doesn't look to hard, but the part is expensive!!
