    anybody just do sway bar bushings?

    I want to replace my suspension bushings with the poly ones. I've heard to only do the sway bar bushings as the rest are a waste and you won't get any benefit. Has anyone just done the sway bar bushings? How difficult was the install? or is it expensive for a shop to do it?

    I did them when I did a rear end swap. I don't remember how long it took but it was very easy. I did the end links too. The bushings and end links were $20 for the set or about that.

    I did bushings and endlinks too. It was real easy and tightened the car for cheap.

    I don't know about all that, but getting a used 32mm from someone and doing poly def won't hurt

    ehh i'd say it's at least equal. i went from 30 with rubber endlinks to 32 with rubber endlinks and there was hardly any improvement to be noted. when i went to poly with the 32 it was a more noticeable improvement than when i upgraded bars with rubber.

    maybe i was just more used to my car the 2nd time. either way, poly is worth it.
