Revo's and Poly Bushings - WOW!

I just installed a new set of 265/70/16 Revos and put a set of poly swaybar bushings on a wow what a difference. I am not sure which made the most change but on my 2001 Trooper it really improved the driving dynamics. I recommend the bushings to anyone still running the stock rubber ones. You will not be disappointed. Probably only took me 45 minutes to do all of them and that was taking my time.

cheers.

Hi,
Where did you get the poly bushings from? I could use them in my 98 Trooper.
Thanks.

Straight out of the old JC Whitney catalog. About $20 for the set. I don't have the part numbers but I found them by doing a search in (I think) this forum.

best of luck

Jim

If you find the part number post it here and I'll insert it into the FAQ's.

Re: Revo's and Poly Bushings - WOW!

Hi,
I found the bushings at JC Whitney:

http://www.jcwhitney.com/autoparts/P...010344/c-10101

and at other stores that sell the poly bushings( Autozone, Pepboys,etc.) does anyone know what size is the sway bar? I can got the right part # with that info and I'll post it here.
Thanks.
Joe

PS: Has anyone ever added the adjustable air bags in the rear springs?

http://www.jcwhitney.com/autoparts/P...003410/c-10101

I'd like to know if they are any good as I'd like to stiffen the rear a bit.

On my 2001 the front is a 1" bar and the rear is a 3/4" bar.

Jim
I'm thinking about doing the same thing!

Could you post all the part numbers that you had to purchase in order to complete the bushing upgrade?

Sorry to bug you....I've never replaced the bushings on a vehicle before. Just want to make sure that I buy/replace everything at one time!

Thanks for the help Jim!

Nice! Thanks for the link.

Are most guys just doing the sway bars (front & rear) only?

I've heard about folks upgrading their bushings...does that mean that they are only doing the sway bars? The reason why I ask is that I see that INDEPENDENT4x (http://www.independent4x.com/categor...?UCIDs=1100654) sells additional polyurethane products.

Just curious what others mean when they say "I've upgraded my bushings to poly".

As always...thanks for the help!

Re: Revo's and Poly Bushings - WOW!

Just an Update:


I put on a set of ProComp ES9000 shocks and once again am pleased with the result. I replaced an old set of Monroe-Matics that were past their prime after only one year. The new feel is both more comfortable and firm. It doesn't ride harsh at all - which was one of my fears.

Cheers.

Jim

Re: Revo's and Poly Bushings - WOW!

Hi Jim,

Do you have the part #'s for the ES9000 shocks? I'd like to put them in my 2002, I just put Rancho 5000's in the 98, there not bad, my Nissan has ES9000's and they are great.
Thanks,
Joe

Re: Revo's and Poly Bushings - WOW!

Hi all,

The Energy Suspension part #'s for the poly sway bar bushings are: 9.5161 for the front ad 9.5156 for the rear, G-Black, R-Red C-Greaseable, The ones that I bought were 9.5161GC (front) and 9.5156GC (rear)The local Pep Boys had them in stock. Easy install, The end of the underbody guard in in the way a bit on the drivers side, just bed the end down a bit (about 1 1/2 inch) to clear the zerk fitting and the brackets are a bit longer than stock so the one end will bend slightly where it meets with the frame, but mounting is easy. The rears mount without any problems. An easy install as you don't even have to lift the truck.

Joe

Re: Revo's and Poly Bushings - WOW!

I ordered them here:
http://www.4wheelonline.com/Products...ProductId=1345
and it will walk you through to the correct part number. However, my fronts were #915510 and my rears were #919500.

I just came back from a 1700 mile R/T to north MN and am very happy with them.

Cheers.

Jim
