Bought new Sway Bar Bushings!

Ok so i just bought some new Sway Bar Bushings and payed a pretty penny for them but they are Polyurethane all around for the rear and front sway bars. The price of the items wasn't to bad but the price for the Shipping was awful! 18.00 dollars fore shipping and i will be giving feedback on the products and the costumer service. Here's the site link http://www.suspensionconnection.com/...lift_kits.html Hopefully this site helps you all out with all your suspension purchases. Like i said shipping is steep but the products look to be good quality will find out in a few days for sure though. I'll keep you updated. Wish me luck!

They have a Air ride air bag kit that has a lifetime warranty for like 80.00 dollars so they are pretty reasonable except on the shipping.

P.S. I even ordered some Underbody Coating and i will be sanding it all down under there while i'm at the Bushings and spraying on the underbody coating.

Well got the bushings 2 days ago and put em on wallow go gonna go for a test drive after i change the oil. I'll let ya know what happens but i think i may still have the noise cause i rocked it from side to side and it's still there but faint. We'll see hope it's fixed after a bit of driving. Wish me luck!

Did you change the swaybar end-links? That's usually what causes any front end noise.

Mine makes noise when you rock it side to side too. Turns out it's the bug deflector on the front. Can you have somebody rock it back and forth while you try and locate the noise? Try spraying WD-40 on one part at a time and see if it quiets down any. Good luck finding it.

Update the noise is in fact the Sway Bar End Links because they have loosened up from not being properly torqued by my dumbass! I guess that shows that you need to use thread locker and tighten properly the first part i did(thread locker) just didn't tighten properly. Aw well everyone is entitled to a few mess ups right?
