Yeah Cali, while you are at it, see if you can find anyone that makes, or can make poly bushing for us. Energy Suspension has been holding out on us for too long. Maybe someone can convince them.

Can you not find Addco swaybar endlink bushing kits? I got mine this summer at Pep Boys for $12/pair

Does Addco have a bushing kit other than the endlinks?

not to my knowledge, but they do sell sway bars, which might come with the other bushings.

They sell sway bars? That's cool, are they as good as the Eibachs?

I don't know that either...I sure don't know much
I do recommend the endlink bushings though. It's probably the best $12 mod around!

For the front, I haven't found any suitable replacement center bushings.

For the rear I use Energy Suspension busings. The LX rear sway bar is a 5/8" diameter, and that size should be available to most any parts shop who carries E.S. You'll need to trim the U-Bracket that comes with the new bushings in order to make it fit OEM-style on our rear sub-frame. When you take it all apart you'll see what I mean.

If you find the bushings and need some help with the installation, hit me up via Email or IM and I'll try to better explain what I did to install those bushings.

It does make a difference. :tup:



If you make the switch to a GT rear sway bar you'll have to switch to 3/4" rear bushings. The GT rear bar is (as you already guessed) a larger diameter. It's noticeable when you change over. ;-)

That's a great idea about the GT sway bar. I bet it would also cost alot cheaper than say an Eibach sway bar. That's cool I didnt know that you can use ES bushings on the rear of the car, thanks for the tip!
