Footnotes

Energy Suspension Sway Bar Bushings

Energy Suspension Hyperflex Sway Bar bushings are made of polyurethane, which is a much more durable material for suspension bushings than rubber. Polyurethane does not break down due to road grime, weather or oils the way the rubber can. Have the peace of mind knowing you have a long lasting part on your sway bar with Energy Suspension's sway bar bushings. Energy Suspension's polyurethane sway bar bushings provide a secure grip on the sway bar and do not warp over time. With this snug grip, your vehicle will see a performance boost similar to installing a larger sway bar.

Energy Sway Bar Bushing
Faulty Rubber

Faulty Rubber

A sway bar's function is to maintain the maximum amount of road contact during tires. The sway bar is held to the frame of the vehicle with a sway bar bushing. Original Equipment rubber can warp and/or crack, losing its grip on the bar. This causes your sway bar to lose its effectiveness. Just look at the old rubber sway bar bushing to the left. Imagine how good of a grip that thing could keep on a sway bar. Go with Polyurethane.

Be sure to use Formula 5

The sway bar bushing sees a lot of action, so make sure you grease it well with Energy Suspension's own Formula 5 Bushing Lubricant. Using plenty of grease is the best way to ensure a long lasting part without any squeaking. If you'd like some extra grease just in case, pick up an extra 3 pack or an 8 ounce tube.

Could not install on my truck. The bushings need to be sanded/cut down in order to fit. I would have returned them but they have that nasty grease all over them and the shipping cost to send back made it a deal breaker. So the parts are sitting on a shelf collecting dust. Editors Note: Before purchasing sway bar bushings you need to measure your sway bar. Some vehicles have as many as 2-5 different sway bars. Even when there is only one choice, always measure your sway bar to ensure fitment.

Question:
I purchased the 8.5118 from another site and it does not fit on my bar. do you offer the correct sway bar bushing for my pickup?
Answer:
Sway bar bushings can be a tricky thing, since most vehicle manufacturers don't have a stock size on their vehicles. It is best to measure your sway bar diameter (http://www.suspension.com/blog/how-to-measure-a-sway-bar-6-different-ways/) so that you u know you are getting to correct bushing. ...see more

Question:
What size is my front sway bar? I have a 99 Tacoma SR5 4WD with the TRD Offroad package. V6
Answer:
Much to the dismay of many buyers - almost all automotive manufacturer's used several different size sway bars in their vehicles. There is no rhyme or reason to this practice. It is random and different between cars of the same make, model, year etc. . The ONLY way to ensure you're buying the correct size bushings for your car is to actually physically measure the sway bar. ...see more
