Complete Suspension Bushing Kit | Thunderbird 1980-1986
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.

- 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
- 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
