Stock bushing…







17mm for the bottom mount bolt. With A ½” drive impact gun.







I could not fit the ½?” drive up in there so I had to use 3/8” drive for the top bolt.







Bracket removed…







Stock vs. new…











Grease applied just needs to be spread around the whole bushing..







Ready to mount..











On the sway bar and ready for the bracket.







Torque to 94 Ft Lbs..







Done!

PRG sway bar end links and LCA spacers to come as soon as I have time for the how-to.

I looked at the site for those bushings, I have Prothane bushings on mine which are red and have the Stillen front sway bar, what a difference in the front end there is with them. The Bilstein 5100 racing shocks were a great addition as well. Very easy install except I had to use the Arm Impact wrench on mine.

Might be my imagination but the front end seems to ride more solid. Definately more quiet.

Looks good.......I guess I better go check the front end out but it still seems quiet on my gravel road which is amazing......thanks for the "how-to" again.
