Is replacing the rear anti-roll bar drop links an DIY jobb on the 159?
How is it done?

If you are ok with a spanner then yes,it is just 2 nuts on each link,just make sure both sides of car jacked so tension off the ARB,sometimes nut spins off easy others the joint will turn I find gripping other side with mike grips while spannering the nut helps

Mine were rusted and the socket head in the stud so chewed I had to resort to a grinder to cut the stud.

Replacement dead easy. As said, jack up both sides at same time to remove the load on the bar - otherwise it will fight you!

The problem with this job is stopping the joint from spinning. So may be jacking up one side first will leave enough tension to start the unscrewing. But really an impact tool will help massively.
