Anyone seen Prothane kits like the ones listed in post 12? All I can seem to find close are universal bushing sets. Just looking to compare. Thanks.

The same thought had crossed my mind as I have seen some other similarities. Last dumb question, seen the ES kits with greaseble bushings and brackets?

I'm using the ES 9.5164G (2WD) universal greasable for the front sway bar. The stock brackets are much stronger and heavier gauge. Consider using the OEM brackets with graphite bushings or drill the brackets and bushings and add zerks.

I've read the '91-'94 poly shackle bushings will work on the Gen 2, but confirm first. Search ES 4.2124 on the forum. Rubber encased replacements linked below.
