Can somebody confirm that the Moog bushings are the same as the Raybestos bushings?
If so, that then makes both the same as the "thermoplastic" Napa bushings, correct?

I've read the several threads on this topic and can't quite find an authoritative answer. They all appear to be the same, but knowing fersher would help me-- shipping up here is too $$ to make mistakes.

Thanx!

i have a 07 commander sport with a 2 inch lift. prior to the lift and currentyl, the front suspension sounds kind of jarry....feels the exact way it sounded too, not sure if that makes sense. would this be from the stock bushings going out? the owner before me put 20' wheels with low profile tires on it (a waste of a jeep i know). i sold the wheels, bought stock ones and put on a 2 inch lift. from what i hear those low profile tires are terrible on suspension which makes me believe the "jarry" sound is from the bushing going out. any tips or tricks?

today i installed the raybestos front sway bar bushings. this took a total of 13 minutes. these took away the knocking sound from the swaybar bouncing around in the old bushings. those things were trashed! the handling is insane, it hugs corners like some kind of huge off road go-cart now haha. i would recommend these bushings to anyone and everyone thats looking to clean the "feel" of their commander up.

thanks to the gentleman that reccomended the veggie oil to help get them on, that helped a ton!

Thanks to everybody who has posted info on this, extremely helpful. I too was experiencing that front end knock, and by following the the info here I installed new bushings and the difference is amazing.

Just a note on the size of bushings, I have the V6 but have the larger 34 mm sway bar.

I know I dug this old thread up, but this was helpful. I was just going to order the smaller one since I have the v6, but now I know that I need to measure first.

Turns out that I have the larger sway bar on my v6 commander as well. Looks oddly new, as if the dealer replaced it at some point. P/N sticker still clear as day on it p/n 52090154ag which shows as "srt8 swaybar" interestingly enough. Rear sway bar does not have an SRT8 p/n on it, so it mustve been swapped in the front or they just started throwing the bigger sway bars in the front in the final years of production.
