I followed Greg Gordon's method for adjusting the ride height, took a few attempts but was able to bring car down 3/4 or so. Looks nice and improves the handling a bit. With lower a arm off it might be easier. ( or not). As for the sway bar bushing they are a real pita. Get them out as barbancino says. I put polys back in, much easier to work with. Could never figure out how to press in stock Alfa's. Position is crucial with stock and make sure your orientation is correct. They are different angles and need to go back as they came out. Upper a arm bushing I used poly also, as I remember they have spacers that go on either side. Bolt that secures upper is sort of feel your way around. Good luck.
