Sway Bar Bushing

Sway bar bushings insulate the sway bar where it mounts to the vehicle, which helps to absorb vibration and prevent metal-on-metal contact.

Symptoms of Wear or Failure

  • Scraping or squeaking noise over bumps

Related Repair Advice

  • The sway bar end links should be inspected and replaced as necessary if the sway bar bushing are replaced
  • Unless other suspension components must be removed, replacing the sway bar, its bushings, and/or end links should not result in the need for a wheel alignment
