Help needed ASAP sway bar bushings

6 posts in this topic Last Reply

During another test drive before Mid Fest, sway bar brackets came loose and I lost both bushings (don't ask how!) The bar is 22mm Suspension Tech (I believe). Are the bushings available at some generic parts store? I checked Advance Auto but they have nothing that come close. I need a pair (rubber or poly) like in a day or so. I put the smaller bushings from the other car (19mm bar) but they are a tight fit, don't cover the bar completely, bar rattles like son of a b%*$ and car handles like sh#$. Any suggestions? Do generic poly stuff fit (e.g., for American cars).

Autozone had something in red urethane. I don't know what the specs were but they were pretty. I don't know if you can ream out urethane or not. The machinist at work used to modify urethane bushings for stamping applications.

Autozone Part number 9.5108R

the ones that go in the brackets, not the endlinks, right?

I improvised some holder bushings by cutting up some small heater/radiator hose from the parts store, and holding it in place withe epoxy.... heh... worked for my rear bar for a couple years, until I removed the rear bar.
