Re: Track bar needs new bushings
Track bar bushings are molded in place, and it is not unusual for them to be shot at 40,000 miles. I replaced my track bar with an adjustable one from Skyjacker and I'm happy with it.
The clunk under foot is PROBABLY the end link on the front sway bar. There was a TSB on them at one time. They appear tight but under a load they flop around because the hole dameter is much larger than the bolt. Tighten the snot out of them- I think they upped the torque to something like 140 foot pounds, but don't take my word for it. You twist off the bolt and a new end link is about $80.
