New rear sway bar bushings.

Installed new sway bar bushings from Garage Products......great fit and really tight,The factory cat bushings were junk from the git go,you can rattle the sway in the showroom..........The owner John Archer ask me to test fit his sway bar bushings before he puts them in production.

good idea on the tow shackle n zip tie when wheeling .. I use one front n rear on securing mine sideways on my flatbed truck one strap each way pulling in opposite directions, then I add a strap on each end to pull them down and the act as wheel chocks while at it. this rig ain't moving period !! I use straps that have chains the last couple feet each end.

back to the sway bar bushings ... why did you install them ? problems with your stock ones ?

name is Gary or hey you if ya forget

2009 Prowler XTZ , couple things added here and there
'83 CJ7 / SBC + whole lot added here and there
'01 Dodge / Cummins / Dually, a ton of stuff added here and there

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE NEWBIES ...
1. Bring in a good load of firewood for the pit
2. start the morning coffee , strong but not burnt / boiled down , IMPORTANT start it early as many of us old farts get up early !!
3. sit a spell and swap some lies with the best of us

RANCHO used to carry them in different sizes! Tightening the mounting points and allowing rotation of the bar is a good bet!

Gary,The factory ones were way out of tolerance,you could move the sway bar up and down in the bushings,These bushings from garage products are oil filled.

I'm sure things are loose and bolts missing after that run .. beat on it bad for many miles over a desert boulder field , that loop was about 20+ miles and all large rock/boulders ... like to shook my wife's boobs off sure glad we have suspension seat and shoulder belts for her bad back or I would still be hearing about that from her

When we rode in Quartzsite, we were bounced all over the place! Poor Rhino we borrowed was a 450cc machine! We were in the company of 800/900 RZR's! Very hard to keep up, but we sure give it Hell trying! We were both sore for a week!
