I am in the process of ordering new bushings (polygraphite) for my mustang and want to know if there is a difference between the pillow block set-up and the regular bushings on the sway bar. The kit I ordered just has the regular bushing with a metal retainer that bolts to the frame. The old one I took off the car had a pillow block setup with a plastic shim between the bushing and the sway bar. I don't think this is correct but who knows. I am just wondering if there is some advantage to going with the pillow block type of bushing.

Thanks,

That looks like something completely modified and much higher tech than I have. I already have a 1" front sway bar and what was on the car was a pillowblock attachment to the frame instead of teh normal round bushing. Just curious if there is an advantage to one or the other.

It's a bearing? How do you put it on a stock swaybar?

The regular bushing resembles a pillowblock, I suppose. Does it look like this:

If so, then it's basically stock.

No that is what I have now ordered. The support that was on there that I took off is different. You can see a picture of the pillowblock at www.npdlink.com under suspension.
