99 front sway bar question

On my wife's 99 the front sway bar is loose like the bushings are wore out . Is the bar supposed to move up and down and side to side ? It has kind of a thump and bang under the truck when you hit a hole , like the exhaust is loose but its not .

It should be fairly tight some give but not much.Youcan get all links and bushing for around 50 bucks cheap fix.

I shop at Oreilly auto just because the commercial sales guy there is a good friend.I bought all mine there less than 3 weeks ago.Go with a good brand like MOOG they may cost a little more but it is worth it later.

I stopped there today , they didn't have just the bushing kit . They said I had to buy the sway bay links too , like 110 bucks !!

You can get a sway bar and end link set here, like $35.

I'm waiting for Kenny to call me back to order mine, along with shocks.

Order the Energy Suspension sway bar bushing kit for your truck. Well worth the $50. I ordered mine from Summit Racing. You'll need a ball joint press to get the job done, which is available at any auto parts store to borrow.

Your store is jacking you around. I paid 16 a piece for the barlinks 43 a piece for monroe reflex shocks and 20 or so for the sway bar to frame bushings.

The lady there said that I couldn't just buy the bushings for the links . She said that I had to buy the complete link ?? The link is 45 bux per side , that is not including the sway bar bushings . I posted in the vendors forum , maybe I will get something there . I'm gonna call napa in the morning and check their prices too .
