Are the sway bars supposed to be able to move freely in the bushings or are they supposed to be pretty tight? I ask because obviously they are really loose, and well sometimes on the car feels like big boat, sometimes I feel like I'm gonna get sea sick, lol, so I'm trying to figure out why...


Thanks

The bar should be snug, and certainly shouldn't be able to rattle in the bushing. If they're old, rubber does dry out and lose both size and elasticity. Happily they're also cheap to replace, $10-15 from the dealer. Polyurethane doesn't shrink, but being much stiffer is more likely to suffer wear. The bushings which came with my Suspension Techniques anti-sway bar were ridged on the inside to hold the grease, which makes it easy to notice the wear as the ridges are gone along the top of the cylinder.

If the bar is moving you've got bushing issues. Replace the bushing like Galcobar said and it should take care of the problem.
