    Finished front end suspenion bushings

    Bushings Replaced:

    • Castor Adjustable Radius Rod (Pedders) - These were pretty straight forward and everything was just as Sarge wrote in his article.
    • Sway Bar (Energy Suspension) - I had to remove the battery and the intake to get to these. I also used a rachet extension to reach to the nuts and get them off. Overall these were not that difficult either.
    • Endlink (Energy Suspension) - These were the easiest to replace IMO.
    • Control Arm (Energy Suspension) - These were a bitch to remove. First of all don't try to remove these unless you have a press. The press was able to remove the bushing and then we had to cut through the oem shell and remove it with a flat head screw driver by banging it out and pulling with some vice grips. We managed to get the oem shell and bushings out without damaging the control arm. If I had to do it again, I would have just bought a new control arm to install with the new bushings.


    I have not driven my car yet because I still need to finish the rear-end bushings and then get the 4-wheel alignment. I will post the results of my work soon.

    i ended up using a 3 foot extension to get to the sway bar bushing mounts, that made them pretty easy....plus my battery is in the trunk and just popped my CAI off to get to the drivers side
