Installed MOOG Bushing - DW fix

As many other have endured this issues with their Jeeps, I too have fallen victim to the inevitable Death Wobble.
I decided to go with a MOOG bushing as I have used these in the past and have had good results from. I didn't need to remove the trackbar completely from the frame/axle and pressed out at a local shop. Just used a large C-clamp to remove (press-out) the old stock bushing which was completely f*cked up (see pics) and pressed in the the new 2-piece design Moog bushing.

Fairly easy to do. Which bushings do you prefer? how long do think this bushing will last?


Thanks.
-Sam

That OE bushing was completely dead, as evidenced by the separated sleeve/bushing material. If your front suspension sees much travel/articulation, I'd recommend putting a new Clevite bushing assembly into that end instead of the split poly bushing. Otherwise, that will do you well.

I'll see how long this bushing will last. I know that ENERGY Suspension makes some great products as well so I may go that route if this one wears out within the next 10k miles.

I also noticed that the bolt was a bit loose as well, so I'll head over to my local hardware store and see about getting a bit larger bolt to help tight it all up a bit more.
