Bushing Replacement Kit - Pontiac Firebird
Energy Suspension makes parts in 2 colors. Red and Black.
How are these two colors different?
The only difference between the red and black parts is that most Black Energy Suspension parts are Graphite Impregnated. This serves to help self lubricate the bushings. The Red parts do not have this characteristic. Aside from the actual color and the lack of being Graphite Impregnated - the red parts are essentially the same as the black.
I thought that the RED parts were harder and more performance oriented?
This is a common misconception. The red parts have the same durometer (hardness) as the Black parts and differ only in their actual appearance (color) and the fact that they're NOT graphite impregnated like the Black parts.
Why do people buy the red parts when they're not Graphite Impregnated like the Black parts?
In the end this is really because some people simplylike the color Red more than Black.
I thought Energy Suspension Made parts in Yellow and Blue as well?
Unfortunately Energy Suspension stopped producing these colors a long time ago and they are no longer available on the market.
How To Measure Your Existing Sway Bar

There are a number of
different size rear sway bars in this vehicle.
The ONLY way to ensure you're
buying the correct size bushings for your car is to
actually physically measure the sway bar. The is most
commonly done one of two ways.
- 1 - Wrench method. This is quite
simple - just take a set of wrenches and see which one fits
over the bar correctly. For example - if a 18mm wrench fits
perfectly over your sway bar - then you have an 18mm sway
bar! Not all of us are lucky enough to be able to us this
method as there are at times mid-sizes like 23.5mm etc. See
below if you fall into this category.
- 2 - Crescent Wrench Method. Just a
little more complex than the wrench method. Simply tighten
down your adjustable crescent wrench down over your sway
bar. When it's tight - slip the wrench off and measure
between the ends of the prongs. The distance between these
is the size of your sway bar.
Buying the correct size bushings is VITAL to ensuring
optimum performance from your sway bar. Bushings that are
too large will not properly grip and support the sway bar.
Likewise bushings that are too small may simply not fit
over the bar and make installation impossible.
