bushings for front stabilizer bar

What is the symptom for the need to change the front stabilizer bar bushings?

Does is make noises? Is there a vibration? Other?

At what mileage would this be suspect of changing as a wear item? 50k 75k 100k... more?

Is it something that can be pulled off, greased and reinstalled? Do you replace them?

If you have changed them, do you use rubber or polyethylene?

Has anyone tried upgrading with "zerk" fitting to enable greasing them?

wish i could offer some advice, but my front stabilizer bar is sitting in my container. i pulled it off my truck.

however i doubt the metal itself is going bad. most likely the bushings. i'd probably have a look at them and see if they are intact, if so try to put some grease on the bar and maybe force some in between the bar and bushing

if the bushings are going bad then replace them, and like you said if possible add a zerk fitting so you can grease later on

It turned out to be bolt that was completely stripped spun by an air wrench.

It had to replaced and tapped to repair.
