Swat Bar bushings


Recommended Posts

I need to replace front sway bar bushings (dried out & noisy). I have noticed that under various parts listings that they mention bushings for 1 1/8" & 1 1/16" diameter sway bars. My vehicle is a 1990 with 3.0 V/6. Anybody know which would be the correct bushings? Thanks, Bob

You merely have to measure the sway bar, that way you will get the correct bushings the first time.

If you don't have the proper micrometer or caliper to measure your sway bar you could always use a c-clamp. Just clamp it to the bar at the point where it barely slips on and off the bar, take it off and use a tape measure to measure the opening of the c-clamp.

Another method to measure a round bar or whatever is to take a strip of paper and wrap it around the object slightly uneven, make a pen or pencil mark across both sides of the strip then take it off and measure between the marks and divide by 3.1416 (pi).
