Josh, quick question(s); are you running the SRT8 sway bar front and rear, do you recall which option (A or B) and dia size for the bushings you referenced (Energy Suspension Universal Sway Bar Bushings) ?

I think I will fire the order in this weekend for front and rear SRT Swar bars and get the above bushings, just wanna order right

Thanks guys!

Cool and thanks! Will check it out.

Totally separate issue, i have the JBA UCA's up front, and had to replace the ball joints. I put in the Moog problem solvers (liked the idea they are made in the US), but the boot seems to have lost the 'seal' to the ball joint body, anyone face this and have a solution?

Haha YES! I went thru three ball joints like this. The next thing that will happen is your ball joint will seperate from the socket and you will have a big issue on your hand.

Comforting knowing im not the only one with this issue, the ball joints that came with the JBAs ripped the boots to confetti...

Glad i ordered a second spare pair but different brand to Moog, i think i got Raybestos but they are made in Sri lanka or somewhere out there ...

Will let you know how it goes, i know the day i wheel in them the joint will just fill up with sand !

On your pick are those the camber/caster offset ones?

What side is it on? Is it possible your upper control arm is upside down?
