    Thumbs down Is this the right bushing for my suspension?

    I need a rubber bushing for my front suspension. Its the bushing on the front, the lower control arm, where the sway bar comes from the lower control arm going to the frame. I guess this bar keeps the wheel from moving back and forth. I thought it would be called the lower control arm sway bar bushing, but nothing comes up. I found a bushing that looks very similar to it, it might be it. Its called a Strut Rod Bushing - Front Susp
    Here is the link to the one i found at Napa, pepboys have it too.

    Thanks in Advance

    Yes it is called a strut rod bushing. Rock Auto also has it. The bar coming off the A arm to the frame is the strut rod.

    The parts are actually called insulators (inner and outer) and isulator retainers. I bought them from a dealer.

    Thanks guys... I replaced one side before and i had to get the bushings from the junkyard. One more question. The inner insulator/bushing looks thicker and smaller in diameter from what it looks like when its on the car...Will the bushing flatten out and expand to the right size when you tighten it down?

    Yes, they do change the shape.
