Step 3: Install New Bushing

Now follow the trick from the tools page picture. Prepare the new bushing by spreading it open. Insert a bar through it and tilt the bar till it forces the bushing open. Now force in a socket which is just smaller then the sway bar. Now push that bushing onto the sway bar.

Next hook the bracket back in place and line everything up and find the nut for the bolt. Screw it all back together. Make it tight.
<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>
