How many types of bushings?

I started getting some annoying squeaky noise coming from the front right side when I go over any little crack after some normal city driving. I want to change every budging that exists, can someone tell me how many types exist and if Moog parts are adequate? Thank you.

Re: How many types of bushings?

There are ALOT of bushings in the front end, many of which can be tough to get to.

IMO you would be better off trying to figure out which ones are bad, and only replace those you have to. Most of the bushings can be visually inspected to see if they are any good.

Off the top of my head (there could be more), I can think of:

Sway bar to frame bushings
Sway bar end links
Lower control arm bushings
Upper control arm bushings
Axle Isolator bushings

Many of the components listed above have multiple bushings (wherever the piece attaches to the frame). So, if you want to replace them all you are looking at quite a bit of work!

As to the second part of your question, I would have no concern replacing with MOOG parts.

Re: How many types of bushings?

Thanks! I should just mention that I want to inspect/change all mid or rear bushings too. Also, when I changed the rear stabilizing links using this : http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/moreinfo.php?pk=1056975 did I need to change the bushings as well?

Thank you.

Stick wiith Rubber for all those bushings and do not go with Moog TPR or Energy Suspension poly. The TPR will cold flow and compress and the poly will squeek you to death over every bump.
