Front Sway Bar Bushing - Correct Size?
I am getting ready to "pull the trigger" and order some parts to start rebuilding my front end suspension. I am going to be ordering UCA's, LCA's, sway bar end links, various bushings, etc. In preparation for doing this, have been doing lots of research, price comparing, searching and reading various information on this forum. Tons of great information!!
One question I have though.....what is the correct size front sway bar bushings that I need for my car??
My car is a completely stock (original) 1991 Cougar 3.8L LS. I have attempted to measure the front sway bar on my car, and the best I can tell from the micrometer is that it measures ~ 1.10 inch. Does that sound about right for the sway bar size on this car?
When looking at various parts warehouses (like RockAuto.com, etc)...I see so many different sizes of front sway bar bushings. Which one is correct for this application??
Lastly....any recommendations on which "brand" to buy, or where to buy the front sway bar bushings??
