Changes are almost always done by production date.Sometimes it is expressed as a date and sometimes they use a serial number or VIN number.The production date is your safest bet.

How to replace rear sway bar links and bushing on Dodge Durango 07


Replacing the sway bar bushings and links is not that difficult. They can be ordered from any auto-parts store, Amazon or eBay. However, you will need to know your rear sway bar diameter before ordering parts. The only way to know this is to measure the rear sway bar diameter. If you're real lucky, the rear bar may have an existing part number tag, but I wouldn't count on it.

Replacement procedure can be found on youtube or similar with a Google search.
Best regards,

Torque spec for shocks

top bolt if it's a stud and bushing type gets tightened until the threads run out - usually where the bushings squash pretty good. the nut on top will stop turning. Other fasteners tighten to about 50 lbs or so depending on the size of the bolt or nut. small bolts like 5/16, 3/8, 10mm shaft size get about 30 lbs. Torque is all about the size of the bolt ( the diameter) . Large fasteners like 1/2 in. and above get 50 to 80 lbs. . hope this was helpful

Do I need a pilot bearing for my flywheel? No one lists it, for the Accord

You definitely have a pilot bearing, ask a. Napa dealer to find you one, if they don't see it in the book listed.
its going to be part of the clutch kit you'll be buying to replace your old one.
in the kits you get a pressure plate, release bearing, disc, alignment tool, and pilot bearing, Beck Arnley is a good choice.
if you want just a bearing you'll probably need, the input shaft diameter where the bearing rides, the inner diameter of the flywheel hole it's inserted in, and the depth of the hole in the flywheel.
you should have to much trouble finding one.

Need a brake pedal assimbly i have a 89 jeep cheeroke but the light switch dosnt work any more becasue they discontiued the dame plastic bushing. ITS AUTOMATIC NOT CLUTCH DAMIT. sorry i keep geting clutch...

I don't know if this will help or not, I'm not 100% sure just what you need. If you know the thickness plus the inner and outer diameters you might be able to get an acceptable replacement part from a farm & garden store like Tractor Supply Company. They often deal in generic bushings and sleeves.

How to install a starter and how to extract a bushing from behind the flywheel?

If you find a tap[from a tap and die set] that i just slightly larger than the bushing's inside diameter but smaller than the outside diameter of the bushing[i think 12mm] this can be used to extract the bushing.Simply tread it into the old bushing and let it bottom out,keep turning and the bushing will start to "climb" up the tap until it finally comes out.

Hi gege01!

Yes, you DO need a special tool to properly install the bushings, but you might be able to improvise a bushing screw-press with some allthread, nuts, fat washers, and some appropriately sized pipe section or sockets, one wide enough to accept the bushing for engaging the control arm, the other small enough to fully engage the bushing head.
Lubricate the bushing with silicone grease, run the allthread (double nutted securely in place at the end) through (in this order) a large washer, the larger diameter pipe section, the control arm bushing mounting hole, the new bushing center hole, the smaller diameter pipe section, washers large enough to fully engage the smaller pipe section, and finally attach another nut to hold the whole thing together. Holding the double nutted end, tighten the other nut to slowly compress the new bushing into the control arm.
Some guys do it with sockets and big hammers, but they generally end up with damaged bushings and smashed fingers!
Hope this helps and good luck!
