I think I tried yanking on these, but can't quite remember.
I do remember sending a picture of the rear sway bar to my friend because it's so tiny I almost mistook it for brake lines.

But I did actually confirm the wheel bearing. I removed caliper, bolted wheel back on, and detected radial and axial play, complete with *clunk clunk* noises
