Addco Rear Sway w/Greasable Bushings
 
A few weeks ago did the rear Bilsteins. Today the rear Addco with greasable bushings from energy suspension.
The stock rear sway is 16 mm, the ADDCO is 22mm. Also, with the Poly Bushings, grease is needed to avoid squeeks.
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.

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.

^^^^^^^^it's here. Greasable bushings for that one too. First I gotta get the struts done and then ill do the sway.

I was contemplating whether to use it, but all i need is a little encouragement.....
