That is your stabalizer bar link. I wouldnt drive it any more than nessesary. It's like 40 bucks total for new ones (replace as a pair only).

Takes like 10 minutes to replace even the worst rusted ones, those look [retty cl;ean still lol.

No dude those are shot trust me. I've seen a million of these things and those are for sure toast.

They hold the sway bar in place is all, just keeps everything in line and at proper height.

No you need 2 new sway bar links. Cheaper to buy local than online.

you are correct the only damage Ive found is the bushing, causing the vertical bar to jolt around

ok well as a ford licensed tech I'd recommend a replacement.

with as much space as he has in between the bar and link base those have been like that for some time.

but hey, your truck just my opinion.

----------

think about it, $20 for some bushings, or $40 for new links with no shipping fees and will last 20x longer.

those dont look like much but they are pretty vital, they are not meant to be reuseable parts, they are a one time deal.

I believe you, I was just wondering abuout your justification. Thank you for your help. Are the bushings in the link above correct?
