Anti-roll-bar bushes replacement

Did anyone of you replace on his own the front anti-roll-bar bushes?
I have a annoing noise on my car and I think the problem is caused from that.
I've the workshop manual and it seems a difficult thing without hydraulic bridge and specific tools...but I was thinking that maybe the work could be done lowering a little bit the frame on which the anti-roll-bar is mounted...

No....I mean these ones:

I see in ePER that there are two kind of rubber pads (bushes) and two kind of metal brackets for Fiat Croma.
I will try to buy bushes (and also brackets) like the Astra ones in the video (Fiat codes 71740109 and 71740110), because mine are different from the video, each bush is separated in two parts and very difficult to assemble... it's impossible to do the work without dismounting the frame under the vehicle (so following the workshop manual) but maybe with the other kind of bushes (and brackets) I could do the work as in the video....I will see and tell you

It's difficult to describe it, it's a front light knocking noise that appears on slightly bumpy asphalt. Not on deep holes....I mean, when suspensions work hard, I don't hear that noise.
On my old wreck Croma I had (Croma year 2006, after 400.000km) a front/left noise that I assumed to be a front track control arm bush. But on this Croma (2009, 116.000 km) the noise is different. Never heard that on the old one. It seems to be front-central. And especially when the bumpy asphalt is only on one side of the street.
I followed the e-learn step by step diagnostic procedure and I arrived at the stabilizer bushes....
And...if I remember well...on the old Croma the bushes were different. They were like the Astra ones...
Anyway...they look worn out. I don't think I'll do a wrong thing changing them.

Hi, I replaced them but nothing changed. After some time the sound went away by itself. Don't ask...I don't know...
Now the car has got 240.000 km and another kind of sound came out: but this one is surely from the left side. I suppose coul be the left Rod/Strut, stabiliser. Or I hope so. It's very hard to find the exact guilty part
Thanks everson38 thanked for this post

I hope you get it sorted. Keep us posted if you get down to the bottom of it.

Hi, no unfortunately not. Also a mechanic doesn't understand from where the "sound" cames from. But with the first cold of autumn the problem is decreased

Re: Anti-roll-bar bushes replacement

Hi,
Have you changed the roll bar drop links? Fairly low cost and easy. Changing them cured knocking over bumps in my 1.9 16V Croma.
