Energy Suspension Part Numbers for the 30mm Rear Sway bar?

I bought the 30mm rear sway bar from Tousley Ford with the end links. Before I installed it I wanted to upgrade to Energy Suspension bushings. I've called them and Summit and neither is sure which ones I need. Does anybody have the part numbers I'd need to do this? I have a press so changing them shouldn't be a big deal. I'm hoping to get the greaseable bushings for the frame mounting locations.

Thank you,

Joe

Nobody knows the parts? Anybody know what size the bushing on this larger bar are? Or where I can find the info? Are the Polyurethane bushings a bad idea? I searched the site and can't find the specifics on it. Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you,

Joe

I just spoke with ES and they said in the next few months they will start offering a specific kit for the Super Duty trucks. They also said their brackets on the universal greaseable kits are not strong enough for our trucks. I will look into the Prothane ones that Phyrmn suggested.

Prothane retailer referred me back to Prothane corporate. I had to send in an email and I'm waiting for a response. I'll be pulling my TT on a 7hr tow at the end of this month so I'm just going to install the big bar with the factory bushing for now. New bushing and a big bar will be better than what I have now. Any ideas what to do with the old bar and links? Scrap?

I finally got around to bolting up the bigger sway bar. It was a mild pain in the butt. Seemed to be binding a little on where the main mounts bolt to the axle the u-bolts lined up right on the edge of where the bar turns and hoops up and over the drive shaft. I checked the alignment several times to make sure I wasn't messing it up but it seemed lined up and in the same place as the old bar. The big bushings were just about into the area the bar turns into the hoop over the driveshaft when I finished. Made it a little tough to get the u-bolts in and started. I pretty sure I got it right though. I used the old links from the old bar to connect back to the frame again. I bought the end links from the same F350 the bar came from but they were very long and didn't seem right. I'll see shortly on my test drive if I should fire myself and hire a real mechanic.

I went for a test drive and everything is still bolted to the truck! I can feel the difference between the two bars. I can't wait to tow with it and see how that is. I really appreciate the help I always find on this site.

Now I'm on my quest to find a front hitch that fits my truck (with a blocker beam on a 2005 X). My first try with Curt didn't work, so I'm trying their behind the bumper model next.

If its a 4x4 get some V and modded b codes and larger tires and rims and it will make a huge difference.
