Title: F & R anti-sway bushing kits?
Post by: attkrlufy on April 08, 2011, 10:13:53 AM
Anyone recommend a good set of bushings for the front and rear anti-sway bars on a '79 New Yorker?  By "good" I mean super durable.

I have both bars and the mount for the rear sway bar.....but I don't have any of the bushing kits.  There seem to be a million of them out there and people's online opinions don't help much:

"I like Moog.  They're great!"
"$#$@ Moog.  Nothing but junk!"

So, uh, what do you guys like?

Not sure of makers but you might want to look at polyurethane bushings,
they're harder and will tighten up handling and also last longer,
thet're usually considered a high performance suspension part. Don't
beleive they cost much more than standard rubber bushings.



BTW my '70 F3 'vert arrived today...somthing new to see next time you're in Bingo!

Sway bars are the only part of the suspension I would ever run poly bushings.  You might have to do a little leg work and get creative, but you should be able to find poly bushings that can be made to work for your application.

Agreed. . .But they can be noisey.
 
Can't use them in the front suspension on Mopar because there is too much travel.
