    replacing all rubbers/bushings in sway bar

    so as i was changing the oil filter today on my car, i noticed the bushings at both ends of the sway bar look VERY worn, so im thinking of replacing all the rubbers and bushings in the front and rear sway bars.

    is there any easy way i can get them all in one go? maybe some sort of kit?

    If the bar is bigger than stock then you will have to get the appropriate size according to the bar size. Prothane, Super Pro and Whiteline all make aftermaket bushings in different sizes.

    Whiteline used to be selby. So they should have the sway bar bushings that you need. As for getting the others as a package.. if it were me, and I was looking to do them all I'd see if I could find all the group N bushings and replace all the factory worn ones with those. Should tighten things up nicely.

    whats the diameter of the stock sway bar do you know?

    and where can i get some more info on these "group N bushings"?

    Cheers.

    edit: i checked out those bushings, are they worth the price for a full kit?

    Hi,

    I've just received a kit of poly bushes for my WRX from these guys - http://www.strong-flex.eu/index.php, Took 10 days from poland to UK, All seem good quality and will be fitting them over the next few days. Quite cheap too, the kit I made up cost 158 delivered, same kit over here would be 350 odd...

    Hope that helps!

    John
