I have talked to several people with a P.T. cruiser & they all say they have problem with the same thing,why has there been no recall on this part??? you can't replace just the bushing you have to replace the whole sway bar & thats very expensive

    are you sure its not the watts bell crank? its located in the back centered between the tires.those wear out on pt's constantly and cause the same symptons your having.

    its about a $50 part.list price at a dealer,about $90.since the dealer has had eyes on it i would go with thier reccomendation and as far as dangerous,well,anytime suspension components wear theres a risk especially driving around corners at higher speeds.
