The question is... Is an Ailgnment of all 4 corners required?

It doesn't feel or looks like is needed.

yes bro....get an alignment! They dont look out until you see your tirea wearing unevenly

Re: Addco Rear Sway w/Greasable Bushings

Hey Rob (and anyone else that can answer),

Do you know what the part no. is for the Energy greasable bushings? Today I broke one and the Addco rear bar was rattling like a mutha. The guys at Mavis actually made something for me and get this they put in 2 hours of work, stayed over an hour later for me after they closed and didn't charge me a thing. I thanked them with a smile and a nice tip! :-)

What they did works but I still think I may want to pick up a couple of these bushings.

As per the link below, if the rear sway is 22mm thick then I'll need the following: [7/8" / 22mm] ----> Part no. 9.5158

http://www.energysuspension.com/pages/swaybbct.html

Here's a photo. the part that broke is the metal piece.

To start i bought some overpriced Energy Suspension grease. But a Marine type grease is recommended. Maybe a few squirts once a year....
I onkly had to remove the wheels to get the old out and new one in. Took about 90 minutes by myself on the garage floor.
You need a 8MM to hold the end and a 18MM for the nut that's on the end. Then the bushings mounts are 5/8 bolts.

Some pics :
THe bar end:


the greasable bushing:




tooke a quick spin make sure no squeaks, notice 2 Po-Po following me so i had to behave. some testing later this week.

next up front bilsteins, need painting first. satin black like my rear ones.

Re: Addco Rear Sway w/Greasable Bushings

Hi Scott, yes I do. Oh a sec... are you suggesting that the stock metal bracket will work? If so, I'll have to find it in the garage.... hmmm.. Thanks Scott.

Re: Addco Rear Sway w/Greasable Bushings
