One sided suspension wear

I am driving a 1999 wj grand cherokee laredo. I have upgraded rear sway bar with adco 1" and have also installed mevotec sway bar links.

Since original sway bar installation, i have replace links 2x and the actual sway bar mounting bracket and bushing 2x as well. They are going bad or breaking on the left side only. I have also replaced upper and lower control arms in the rear, and new shocks.



I am thinking that i could have a sagging spring in the rear on the left side causing more stress on that sides bushings and mounting brackets.

Re: One sided suspension wear

I have decided to replace springs all around with old man emu "oem" springs. I am using the highest load capacity because I do tow and carry heavy stuff, like bags of cement and stone and such.
Waiting for them to arrive and will get back with how it rides and such.

Re: One sided suspension wear

I dont know how the rubber spring seats are on your jeep, but on mine they are in a bad shape. I would replace them at least when replacing the springs.
