Just got my new Raybestos front & rear sway bar bushings, and rear links from Rock Auto today. The front bushings are the blue plastic "Professional" series, which seems stiffer than the stock rubber ones (hey, ANYTHING has to be stiffer than the original 165k mile ones
But seriously, I'm hoping that they "tighten-up" the front end handling some. Already replaced the links in the front last year, so they should be good to go.
As for the rear, I've never replaced the links, and I also think I hear the "clunk" back there too, so I'll be replacing those links and the bushings too.
Funny though, nobody makes the rear bushings in the hard plastic.....even the Raybestos "professional" series for the rear are the black rubber. Oh well, gotta be better than the originals that are in there.
Since I was ordering all this stuff, and the shipping didn't change much, I also decided to replace my original upstream o2 sensor.....I figured after 165k miles, I got my money's worth out of it.
I got the Bosch sensor, and the total bill for all this stuff w/ shipping was only $156. And they all arrived in 1 day by FedEx.....amazing!
Guess I'll be a busy boy tomorrow......got to get all this stuff on before I bolt on the new General Grabber tires I have sitting in the garage waiting for me to wear out the old Yokohama Geolanders before winter sets in.
