I'm going to have to drop the tie rod from the steering box in order to get the bar off. It looks like the old bushings might be a pill to get out. It did look like I could see some light between the rubber and the bar.
Have any idea which steering stabilizer to try if the bushings don't help? I think the one that is on there now and was installed by the factory.
Thanks for the great advice on the rear stabilizer bar.
I have a 99 E450. Dropped the sway bar brackets and pulled 1 end out of the axle at a time, without dropping the steering.
I sliced the old bushings with a sawzall, careful not to slice the axle. Then they came right out.
I drew the new ones in with a long bolt, a piece of PVC pipe and some flat washers.
Last week, I picked up a Monroe stabilizer at Advance Auto.
