Was doing some service work on my 95 bounder(F53) the other day and noticed that every rubber bushing on my sway bars have disapperared.the bolts is still there but the rubber is completely gone on all four links.

I purchased the new bushings and have them in hand but have no idea how they go.Would someone be so kindly as to take a pic of theirs and post it so I know how to put them back in

I don't have pics but its not that hard, you can see the 6 bolts that holds it all together, just unbolt all 6 and slide the new rubber in place and re bolt..

the person that sells the bushings on eBay has a link to an installation guide. You'll find that the new bushings will ease any fishtailing tendencies of the rig. BTW - Ford stopped selling the bushings some time ago. the big auto parts stores will try to sell you F450 bushings as the same thing (they are not).
