    I'm wanting to replace my sway bar bushings the same time I do my rack bushings. When ordering sway bushings there seems to be 3 sizes. 25, 26 and 27mm.

    Which model Tacoma has what?
    How do I know which size mine is?

    :help:

    well I've determined I need the 27mm, but now the real question is what color to get!!??

    I'm partial to the Red :cool: but the black ones are "graphite impregnated" is that really ever gonna make a difference??

    Sway bar bushings make zero difference. I had a pair of Moog bushings laying around that I had picked up a few weeks ago just to have an excuse to fiddle around with the truck. I went to put them on this Saturday and after I got the driver's side buttoned up, I broke a bolt in the passenger side bracket. So I took the bracket off to go drill out the bolt and then drove the truck to Home Depot to pick up a replacement bolt. At that point, my driver's side had a brand new Moog bushing and my passenger side had no bushing at all. Could hardly tell a difference. Came home, installed the passenger side bushing and bracket and again no perceptible difference.

    Oh well. At least the new blue bushing looks nice. By the way, my OEM businhg looked fine - after 189K miles. They were a little looser than the new Moog bushings, but still way servicable.

    ok, figured as much. thanks

    I've been w/o the sway bar all together for a while now, but I'm gonna put it back on. My wife will be driving my truck alot more for the next couple years and she hates the way it rides so I'm trying to tighten it up for her. Also it won't be seeing as much off road use :(

    You will notice a difference if your current sway bar bushings are fucked. Tightened up my steering a lot.

    Replacing the shocks with 5100's firmed things up a little for me too.
