While installing bushings can be a daunting task - for most cases, the job can be done by anyone with common tools, a basic knowledge of suspensions, and a willingness to get downright dirty. In some cases removing the old bushings can take some effort, but installing the new bushings is typically far easier than the old bushing removal. To aid in installing these parts - each kit comes with basic installation instructions. There are a LOT of user created installation instructions to be found in online car forums and typical internet searches. If you don't feel competent installing these parts a local suspension shop should be able to assist you.

Quote From Energy Suspension's Official Website:

"Both are our Energy's HYPER-FLEX™ performance polyurethane formulations. Energy has impregnated selected black polyurethane components with graphite — to add a lubrication property. Additionally, both Energy Suspension® red and black polyurethane components are engineered differently than OEM rubber components — to be free a floating and non-binding design. This allows for the additional durometer (firmness) of the components, which adds to the performance improvement of the vehicle overall.

"Through its 25 years of design and formulation of polyurethane, Energy's polyurethane components are the best on the market today."

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. 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.

If you cannot find the correct size sway bar bushings listed under your vehicle's specific category - take a look at the Universal Sway Bar Bushings Page.

Simply put - no they wont. While these bushings are firmer than the OEM rubber - consider how bushings interact with the suspension. Bushings (for the most part) are designed to allow the suspension to travel up and down while keeping the proper alignment of the different suspension components. Bushings are not designed to provide cushioning to your suspension - that's what your shocks and springs are for.

The Problem: Soft OEM Control Arm Bushings, Unwanted Camber Change

While the increased durometer (or firmness) of Polyurethane may pass on more road vibrations to the chassis than the sloppy OEM rubber - the actual geometry of the suspension is only brought closer to perfection by the use of these bushings.

Moving Supsension

If your bushings ARE cushioning your ride - flexing vertically - just imagine what they're doing to your alignment when they flex just as much horizontally! The likely result - seen at the left - is performance robbing loss of traction resulting from camber change.
