Default 6 point brace and front sway bar?

I have both coming in the mail.
1).Are there any tricks, or any hassles when removing front swaybar and replacing?
2). I plan on installing the brace at the same time. Any tips on installing this?
I have a 3 inch DP so is there any need for spacers?
2002 viggen.
Thanks all.

The front sway was dropped last night, so went out today.

Getting the front 'swaybar' out requires subframe removal, the engine will need to be supported from the top for this. I'm wondering if whilst the subframe is removed is this the best time to fit the brace?

As far as the 3"dp goes, wasn't this brace designed to clear it?

Yes you will be fine with the 6-pt and the downpipe. Nick made sure of this with the design.

Nothing is easy these days it seems. Looks like the front swaybar will be loads of fun to install. For those of you that have done this, how long did it take?
Thanks
