Sway Bar Collars

Anti-Sway Bar Collars

Part #: See Below

Now a few people have had their sway bar slide back and forth in the bushings.  To stop this is very easy with a set of collars that clamp around the anti-sway bar.  These collars go on the insides of the bushings and stop the anti-sway bar from moving back and forth.

Additional Parts: (Possibly)

Common Sense and Safety should always be observed when working on your vehicle or doing modifications. Jackstands, wheel blocks, disconnecting the battery are a few of the basic safety precautions that should be used and may not be mentioned in the write ups on this site. You are responsible for your own installation, these write ups are a helpful guideline and should not be taken as an official installation instruction. My write up may be different from the kits currently out there, so alwasy double check the manufacturers installation instructions when installing anything. I try to keep the site up to date with changes that have occured as I discover them, but may not have the latest unless someone lets me know. If you feel that an install is above your capabilities after reading my write ups, I recommend getting together with a club and getting some help. Only a few times have I needed to employe some actual help from a shop to get something done. Usually welding or A/C work.
