Product Description

Prothane 1 5/16" 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 under-car grit and grime to stress rubber bushings beyond design limits.

Additional
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.

Note
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.

Application
1985-1993 Mustang 5.0L
1993 Mustang Cobra R


Bushing Lubrication The suspension bushings included with this part can only be lubricated with PTFE grease, also referred to as "Marine Grease". PTFE grease is a very sticky, opaque grease that is water proof and will not degrade the bushing material. If lubed properly at installation, these bushings will not need to be lubricated again. Use of any other grease on these bushings will cause the bushing to fail and any bushing warranty to be voided.

    5 Stars   Perfect fit

    The hardest part was removing the bolts to drop the sway bar down. Use sandpaper or an abrasive pad to clean the bar where the bushing will sit. Be generous with the grease when installing the bushing because those squeaks will drive you nuts!!!

    5 Stars   Tight fit, firm bushings. Worth it
    By on 12/20/2015
    I cleaned the mounting brackets with a wire wheel and sandblasted them. Bushings went in very tight(good thing). If their too tough freeze them for a night and they'll shrink slightly and go in easier. Use the supplied grease! you won't get any of the "common" poly squeaks and you'll enjoy a firmer bushing that'll make the turn in's feel slightly tighter.Like the black finish so they look stock as well. Doesn't make a drastic difference but for 15 bucks why would you replace a 25 year old rubber bushing with another soft rubber bushing? You gain slighty more firmness that you'll feel slightly depending on how worn your stock bushings. A well worth upgrade for the price.

    Great replacement for worn out bushings. Mine were original from 1987, and had seen better days. These are easy to install too. I replaced these along with the end links and added the KYB Gas Adjust strut & shock kit. My car feels my better on the road now.

    5 Stars   poly bushings are great
    By on 11/19/2014
    My suspension was 27 years old. So, I decided to go polyurethane.....everywhere. They are a little bit harder to install because they are firmer but It's worth it. I'm pleased about getting them.

    A good solid product. Almost too solid. If having trouble getting them in their mounts (you will) try putting the bushings in boiling water. Will soften them up to go right in

    I"ll put these in in April when it is warmer in Minesota. They look to be very effective because of the stiffness in the bushings. Can't wait to see what they do.

    About This Brand


    Prothane
    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.
