Swaybar bushings

New to the forum, well I've been on but haven't participated much. Does anyone know why the sway bar/bushings are different in diameters? I can understand between a 2wd and 4wd, but I've been hearing there is up to six different diameters. I drive a 98 limited 5.2 4x4...

Thank you. Just trying to narrow it down so it will make my trips to napa less than three times for the same thing.

Why not just measure your bar? If you don't have a micrometer (overkill) or a caliper you can use an adjustable wrench. Adjust the wrench unti it just slips over the bar and measure the gap between the jaws.

Well, if anyone will go out and measure the sway bar for me, they just made a sale... I'll buy the links too. I gotta Vegas trip next week, and the clunking is annoying. It'll probably still clunk after I change everything out. Gotta love a zj.

I hope you greased them. If not, they will squeak and drive you nuts.

Sure did, thanks. Even if I didn't grease them, it would just be yet another mild squeak this beauty produces. It's soothing in a way.

Non greased aren't a mild squeal.
