Front Sway Bar Bushings

Post by 84Vert » Mon Jan 14, 2013 12:20 pm

I have new bushings for the front sway bar. The middle 2 went on fine no problem. However the outer 2 have a lip in the middle of them where they fit in the groove on the sway bar. How in the heck do you get those on? :banghead: I am almost to the point of cutting them and sliding them on!

I used lots of grease, and a "pickle fork" (tie rod tool) to smack them on in place.
