    tools required.
    >3/8 rachet
    >12m socket

    Parts Required
    >Energy Suspension 9.5161R kit
    15.99 at autozone plus tax.

    Step Zero-Jack up front end and support with jack stands.

    Step one- remove old bushings...easy enough. Unbolt the 2 12mm bolts on each side and fiddle the old bushings/bracket off.

    Step two-Compare old to new and lube lube the polyurethane up.

    Step three- Fiddle the new bushing/bracket on..Warning here. take your time while screwing the bolts in by HAND. I just see a easy chance to strip your holes here.

    Step four..tighten everything up to spec,lower car and test out your new and improved handling.

    I gotta say the after results are WOW..A slight clunking noise of mine is gone lol,the front body roll is way more firm and predictable...I really like it..It put a smile on my face.

    The rear`s are another day when I find them.

    I saw them at Lordco. There should be one in your area but if not, they do mail order.

    I don't know the proper term, but it looks like a grease nipple? You know what I mean.

    Keeps the bushings from drying out and cracking would be my guess.

    How much would it cost to replace all the suspension bushings with poly? Mine are pretty worn.

    Well that's the joy of being in the auto mechanics class at my school. Free usage of all the tools and lifts. :)

    just to clarify, are the front sways 24 or 25mm? This thread says 25mm, but Rick89GTS says 24mm?

    24mm would be 9.5160
    25mm would be 9.5161

    i don't know how much of a difference it would be either way, but the 25mm here looks like a good fit
