Sway Bar Bushing Repair / Replacement

What is the purpose of sway bar bushing?

Located underneath your vehicle, the sway bar bushings are an important part of your suspension that helps your vehicle absorb bumps, produce less noise and drive more smoothly. These bushings are usually made of rubber and can be located inside the clamp that connects to your car’s sway bar (or stabiliser bar).

 


Symptoms of worn sway bar bushings

A properly lubricated set of bushings can last for years. However, sway bar bushings will eventually wear out and need to be replaced. Below is a list of common symptoms associated with failing sway bar bushings:

Rattling noises while driving

When the bushings are damaged, the sway bar itself will become loose and cause your car to make a rattling noise while you drive. The noise will be most audible when you are going around corners or make sharp turns. 

 

Reduced handling

A decrease in handling ability is a common sign of worn sway bar bushings. Like the rattling noises, this sign will also be most noticeable when you are going around corners or making sharp turns.
