I would assume. I only say 175 because I just had new suspension and steering and axle put under my truck at Ford and that's how much he said it was. I ended up getting an icon one instead. So I would think it does because they were replacing everything

Oh and just go to fordparts.com anytime you need prices. They are same price or cheaper and my dealer will match that price.

Awesome. Thanks for the tip on the website. I'm slowing building up my
expertise in doing my own repairs, because the going labor of $125/avg hr
in my area is just insane.

just so you know you dont need a new track bar. You can just get the bushing and the track bar ball joint.

Thanks. You just brought me out of my haze, considering the metal bar
isn't broken, all I need are new bushings and joints. Thanks..

I just called and got a price quote from the local dealership and this is
what he gave me:

$152 = Trac Bar (w/Bushing Installed)
$70 = Ball Joint
==
$18 = Bushing Only


So let me ask you this question. Obviously the ball joint is mandatory, so
that is a given. If I get the Bushing Only, don't I need a special tool to install
it on the track bar?

Now if I get the Track Bar w/Bushing already installed, do I need any special
tools to install the Ball Joint and Track Bar w/Bushing?

My overall concern is keeping the install simple with basic tools and a minimum
amount of brute force.


Thanks,

I would think you could have a shop press in the new bushing. I am not sure what tool you would need to install the track bar ball joint. I will let you know soon lol. Hoping to do this before the end of the month.
