    Question Sway Bar Bushings

    I have the Strano 35mm/22mm sway bar set but I want to use rubber bushings instead of the poly. Does anyone know if any manufacturer makes rubber bushings that will fit the larger bushings on a F-Body car?
    I have found Moog bushings that are 35mm but they are for the Ford Expedition and such.

    Why? I'm not saying you shouldn't, I'm just curious.

    I don't need anymore squeaks for one thing. I want something that'll give a little more and I'm just not impressed with poly. I replaced my factory LCA bushings with Moog bushings and I've been happy with them so far.

    Spray the bushings with silicone lube spray,that should help with the sqeaks.

    If you use rubber bushings you will not get full benefit from the increased bar size,you might as well go back to stock.

    Lube doesn't last. Whether I use rubber or poly I'll have an improvement over stock, regardless.

    I have the Strano Sway bars and poly bushings and they went almost 3 years between lube after the initial install before it started to squeak (daily driver and sees lots of rain), I relube them about once a year now (preventative maintance) with white lithiam grease and never had a noise since.
