    I finally got my new poly bushings after I put my sway bars in :doh: But I am going to put them in some time over X Mas break. The stock 5.0 sway bar bushings are shot and so are the end links. I hope that they will go in smooth. I also have to replace the rear speed nuts, they are not worth crap. I am just going to use some nuts in place of them.

    There is rust from where the old mount bushings rubbed, do you guys think that I should sand it down and repaint, or can I leave it?

    Thanks Dan

    it would probly look nicer, but it would take ALOT of rust to make any differnce as far as strengh goes. So its up to you....

    I imagine if you don't clean up the rust they'll squeek and destroy your new bushings sooner than later.........

    Why not get another set of bars to clean-up, put together, etc. and then just swap them if you want to take your time with the job?

    Well I got time to take the new front bar off and sand and paint it over this X-Mas. I am just not sure what paint to use and how much. The paint that is on the sway bar is thick, so I want it about the same. If you guys have some ideas let me know.
    Thanks
    Dan
