From what i understand this is a common issue. Hear a clunk when one wheel drives over a man hole cover? It doesn't clunk as much when both wheels go over a bump. The clunk is the sway bar bushing.

Will take one hour of time. Bushings are 15$ and come in one box containing two rubber bushings. There are only two bolts to take out. You can fix this yourself.

The vehicle featured is a Dodge Caravan 2002.

Step 1: Prepare Your Gear

Clean the floor, put something down on the floor so you are not on concrete. Raise the vehicle. Get lights placed. Get tools near by.
<p>Use tons of grease,even on a new bushing.Consider using a spray can of lithium spray grease on where the bushing and bracket and sway bar meet,and where the bracket goes into the slot.Go crazy with the grease.This was advice from a few people on a dodge site.I even considered tapping for a zerk fitting.</p>
<p>Never use petrolium based grease to lubricate rubber parts on your car. Do not use mineral spirits either. They will depreciate the rubber. Factory repair recommends vegetable oil or silicone grease like Sil-GlydiSil-Glyde.</p>
<p>great walkthrough! Before anyone buys <br>their replacement bushings, you need to know the size of you bar. <br>Otherwise you'll have a bushing that is too big or small. Here is a blog <br> I made showing 6 different ways to measure a sway bar:</p><p><a href="http://www.aftermarketsuspensionparts.com/blog/how-to-measure-a-sway-bar-6-different-ways/" rel="nofollow">http://www.aftermarketsuspensionparts.com/blog/how...</a></p>
