My truck is falling apart..

I noticed I had exhaus leak and started looking and 3 bolts were missing from the passenger side and 2 other where loose. Then while doing that I noticed my sway bar looking like this...

Ah, that ain't so bad. Just makes it easier to replace the bushings. You will probably need a 10 ton press to get the one out of the top of the link. I did.

Damn! Good thing you found this before all the bolts, and the sway bar fell out!

Time for some Energy Suspension bushings. Get a ball joint press to get the job done.

I had the same thing happen to my sway bar -- I ended up welding a big washer to the end of the nut where it kept popping off the lower sway bar.

Who sells the Energy Suspension bushings? How much is the kit??

Thanks!
