Bushing Help Please!

Ok two things...

I am replacing my drop link / sway bar bushings. I took off the drop links but then got them messed up from side to side. Can someone look and tell me which one goes where. There is one that has a more pronounced bend than the other. Is that driver or passenger side?

Also, I rented a Bushing driver from AutoZone - How the hell do you use it? They didnt know and there are minimal instructions.


THANKS!!

(On a side note, shame on Ford for putting the passenger side drop link so close to the starter...)

Well, I got it all back together. Only issue I had was the top bolt on the passenger side drop link. I couldn't get it to go back in due to the starter housing on the block. So I flipped it around.

I found this helpful write up>

I took it for a long drive this afternoon on some crappy WV roads and its much improved. The front end seems tighter and it doesnt make that clunking sound when I hit dips, potholes or speed bumps. Worth the $45!

Looks Great! How hard was it to get the old bushings out of the end links? Did you end up needing a press or something similar. I plan on doing this soon too.

I tried getting them out myself but it was impossible. I took them to a local machine shop and the guy pressed them out. Cost me $30.

Do the new ones have to get pressed in? Or do they slip in.

Do you have part #'s?
