this bracket/bushing set is for a 28mm bar and from what i gathered from another thread these brackets should be ok for the distance between mounting bolts. i think it was blooz who measured from center to center for the front to be 2-3/4"(thanks blooz) Is there any other critical dimentions im missing? What about the distance fromt he center of the bar to the frame? is that a critical dimmention? it has all the remaining dim's on the website.
yeah...as far as i can see, they def have a flat side to them. I ordered them yesterday, and ill be sure to post a follow up when they get here. A whole 20 bucks with shipping so even if they dont fit, ill only be out 20 bucks
The people at energy suspention parts are VERY nice and made my order change super easy! I switched to the non greaseable bushings without the zurk fittings with part number 9.513. They should fit without too much of a fuss, and i know that part # has been referenced on this forum before...if they need a little trimming or modification, its alright. Ill be sure to update when they come in.
88 swaybar bushings are a pain. I took a different route as usual. A friend of mine gave me a pair of spare 1 1/8" bushings from his Mustang. I figured what the heck...
Unfortuneately, I did not get pics of the process, so words will have to do.
I had to trim about a 1/8" off each side edge of the bracket so that the bracket was narrow enough to fit in the raised edges of the bushing. Then I used a Dremel with a flapper wheel to cut a v-shaped grove around the middle of the bushing. Once the bushing would seat into the bracket, I needed to grind the flat into the bushing. (This is all obvious if you have the pieces in your hand.) Once the bushing seats all the way into the bracket, the bottom of the bushing will need to be trimmed off. I left about 1/16" overhang. A little sandblasting and paint and this is what you should have.
Fits perfect on the bar.
