Re: Sway link replacement questions
I just did my sway links. I had to coat the links with WD40 to get the bushings off the rods. Let it soak for about 30 minutes. The rods were swollen too, and I had to cut one or two of the bushings off. Grab them with vice-grips and twist. I also used a Moog replacement set thinking the higher price and well known name mean better quality: wrong. It's been 8,000 miles and the bushings are already toast. I'm pretty sure I over-tightened the nuts though. I think I'm going to go buy an OEM set just for the bushings, but keep the Moog rods, and this time, figure out the torq specs before I put the new parts on. I didn't think it would be a big deal. I was wrong.
I love my truck.
