Which swaybar bushings....?


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to replace the swaybar bushings in the Wild build but can't seem to find what size I need. 3 different parts stores have given me sizes anywhere from 22mm to 28mm. Parts catalog gives me 26mm and 28mm. No numbers on the bar itself. 8652001144 is the number on the bushing but it seems the parts stores can't cross it or when they do it comes up with different sizes than the parts catalog.

 

So does anyone know what size swaybar bushing that a 88 Pioneer, 2wd with the 2.5l is suppose to have.

Their are actually a total of 6 different sized bushings used threw out the years of the XJ/MJ. Your best bet is to simply measure the swaybar itself and get the correct size bushing based on that. We've tried and tried to come up with "this size bar was used in this year with this motor", but we've not had any luck as we've seen 2 identical same year Jeeps have different size bars.

 

Buy a cheap micrometer and measure it, that will be the only real way to tell.

Thanks Motion.

 

I was thinking that I would end up having to measure it just to make sure. Was hoping they had a standard for different apps but after all the looking, it seems what ever was availble at the time is what they put in.

Throw a wrench on the bar for acceptable accurate measurement. Dial callipers will be better but everyone doesn't have a set of those. :roll:

 

I have a set of Energy suspension ploy bushings on the front of mine. If you go with Polly, be sure to get yourself some White Lithium grease and liberally apply it between the bar and bushing!!

I was trying to figure this out. I think it was a 15/16 wrench that fit on mine. Which I think was 25mm when I measured the gap across the wrench. I have an 89.

 

I just measured mine and it came out to the 15/16 also, which if you convert to mm it's 23.81mm. So with that said I guess I'll go with the 23mm ones. I figure you need it to be a little snug to provide resistance.
