What size swaybar bushings?

I just ditched my trackbars and life is now grand for my 91 4.0. I would like to replace the swaybar bushings at the frame but apparently there's all different sizes according to the parts stores. Is this true or is there a standard size?

The bushings for the sway bar are not simply round bushings. They are flat on one side. I suggest you get them from a Jeep distributor like Morris 4x4 or Quadratec. They're something like $15 for the set.

You have two sizes 1 1/8 inches or 15/16 ths you need to get a gauge and measure your bar. Cost is around 20 dollars.

just take a 15/16 wrench.. if it fits thats the size you need.. if it doesnt fit then you need the 1 1/8

Thanks, I knew the flat part but it's the swaybar itself that's the issue. Apparently I'm gonna have to do some measuring. Thank you also Sardog. I was hoping there was only one size bar for the 91 YJ, but that would be too easy.

my suggestion would be to install the sway bar right next to your track bars

Thought about it but it's my DD. It's not me I worry about. It's dodging the moron who just pulled in front of me. Rofl
