Worth it!! I did daizen front and rear swaybar bushings today. Not much harder than changing oil. My rear bushings were deformed and a little rotted. Could see where a mechanic at some point slopped on a bunch of grease I guess to get rid of some noise. Just as easy to replace the bushings so I dont know what was up with that. (I'm the original owner btw) Fronts were in good shape, but rubber had gotten hard. Easy to feel the difference.
Jacking up the rear at the differential was a piece of cake. Lots of clearance. Just need to keep the handle low. (Sears racing jack)

just did the steering and sways bushing at the same time, about 2hrs total, not hard at all. For the rear I did not even remove the wheels, I jsut jacked up both sides of the car and got under it, very easy.
I need to replace my front and rear sway bar bushings and am looking at the following options:
- OEM rubber bushings 48815 and 48818 from Sewell for $57.61 shipped
- Moog rubber bushings 90524 and 90537 on ebay for $38.52 shipped
- Prothane urethane bushings 181123 and 181124 on ebay for $28.78 shipped
Will the Moog perform about as well as OEM due to similar materials? If I go with the Prothane am I going to need to worry about squeaking over time. I have the Daizen LCA bushings and those squeak occasionally over speed bumps etc. Which would you choose and why? Thanks for any and all input.
