Sway bar bushings need replacing

Thanks to JonJon for pointing this out!

Looks like I need some new front sway bar bushings. I've got the infamous "pop" on the left side and of course the dealer never found anything.

Where do I get me some, and how easy/hard is the install? Links and advice would surly help!

Thanks

Re: Sway bar bushings need replacing

So I noticed the same marks on the other spindle as well. Is it really the bushings, or are my bwoody end links too llong?! They're for a 2" lift and all... Also, are the stock bushings gonna be stiff enough? Just wondering

Re: Sway bar bushings need replacing

I had the knocking before my bwoody's went on. So I would be inclined to believe it is the bushings. Put your stock ones back on and see how it changes.
