    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.
