swaybar link replacement bushings

is there such a thing as replacement bushings for the stock links or do you have to buy the whole link?

Re: swaybar link replacement bushings

You need to get new end links, and also get new sway bar to frame bushings for both front and rear. Rockauto sells them at a good price; just don't get the cheepo Deeza ones with plastic ball joints. If you are looking to upgrade to BWoody HD endlinks, I have a set FS with low miles, chrome finish. send PM if interested.

My Bwoody's are OEM length if interested. Removed them and went to stock since I go off road, where the OEM's are much smoother.

How aggressive are the end links and sway bar upgrades for a 3.7 as a work truck in the city? Too much? I want better cornering.

i dont see how they would be aggressive... any upgrade in the swaybars and links on a WK is an improvement

I dunno I thought I seen somewhere that upgrades like sway bar stuff make the ride stiff or "aggressive". Correct me if I'm wrong.

if by stiff you mean in the corners then yes- the addition of swaybars and upgraded links do reduce bodyroll, not the ride plushness

Re: swaybar link replacement bushings

Adding Bwoody's and SRT8 bars makes the ride rougher. There is no free lunch with handling mods on the WK, as anything you do to make it corner better makes it ride rougher. The SRT8 is brutally rough riding on our roads.
