Prothane 28mm Front Sway Bar Bushings
Urethane sway bar mount bushings deflect less for better handling. Urethane resists oil and temperature changes for longer life. Sold in pairs.
Polyurethane is an ideal material for performance suspension bushings, motor and transmission mounts. Don't get us wrong, Mustang rubber suspension bushings and mounts are a proven compromise. However, additional horsepower, plus size tires, lowered canyon carving street setups all mix with normal atmospheric conditions and undercar grit and grime to stress rubber bushings beyond design limits.
Polyurethane bushings are firm enough to control movement and maintain alignment in sway bars, control arms, and other stressed suspension components without the harshness or resonance associated with solid metal suspension bushings. We believe that after experiencing the precise steering, road feedback and the added firmness PROTHANE polyurethane bushings offer, you'll never go back to rubber bushings.
All sway bar mount bushing applications are suggested. To Verify proper fit, you must measure your sway bar before ordering! This can be accomplished by using a dial caliper or by tightening an adjustable "crescent" wrench on the sway bay and using a measuring tape/ruler to measure the distance between the jaws of the wrench.
Installed this, along with Prothane Sway Bar End Links, made the front end feel more firm and less sloppy in the corners. The old rubber bushing were definitely shot when I replaced them, and this ones fit perfect in my '99 GT. Keep in mind that 00-04 GTs came with different sized sway bars, so it is recommended that you measure them before ordering.
Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

Picked these up a few weeks ago and they went right in. Should be one of the first upgrades for every mustang owner
Lifted or lowered suspensions, increases in horsepower, plus-size wheels and tires can subject traditional rubber suspension bushings to forces beyond their limits. Control arms, strut arms, leaf springs, body mounts, motor mounts, transmission mounts, sway bars and shocks all control movement and maintain alignment but the rubber bushings they use are designed for more "middle of the road" use. Rubber also deteriorates over time, further reducing control. This contributes to premature component failure, a "spongy" ride and less than ideal performance handling. Urethane bushings can correct these conditions, and improve drivability in your Mustang or Ford Lightning.
