Default Is my rear sway bar including the rear away bar install kit?

I was informed that I am missing the end links. What is the black thing attached to the bar then? I see many different kinds of end links online so I don't know which style the pt cruiser uses.

I'd just like conformation before dropping $200 on an installation kit.

Those are the end links. It appears you have all the items needed!

My cell phone only opened the first picture but my PC opened all the pictures!




This is the only picture I saw at the time.




You should be good to go. It is a simple installation with common everyday garage tools.

This is my happy face!!! Woooo!!!

I'm going to indulge in that herb to fight with you later lol. Thanks again nitro. I'll be taking pics when I open the door panels again for the sound deadening. You're looking for tricks on how to do it yourself next time right? It's fairly easy. Let me know if you ever want an answer before I install the new speakers.

Now I wonder which of the rubber things I should have replaced. They might be worn out. Can I buy only the rubber parts? I know the 24-26mm grommet is available on rockauto.. But what about the rubber in the end links?

End links as they look on the PT cruiser





Yes I know it is dirty again, but we did take the PT off road this weekend!

All the bushings are available from several sources.

Here is a set of rear end link I was custom fabricating or assembled depending on what you want to call it? In this case I simply ordered separate components none suspension related and made them work as suspension components. Nothing special here but 1/3 the cost of anything available and I will be using top quality spherical rod ends.

The stock rear sway bar links probably should be replaced as they will make noise if the are worn enough, not always visible.
That Eibach bar is much larger than the stock sway bar like my son and I installed on our 03s. The stock bar makes a big difference over no bars though.
We have not yet found any of the aftermarket improved suspension parts in our trips to the pickyourpart yards.

I went with the polyurethane bushings. There were easy to install, worry free and no noise. The bump stop is nice too. It's fairly soft and does a good job with a load in the back. This all looks good too

The noise will eventually rear its ugly head...but then you NO LONGER own this PT Cruiser so you don't have to worry.

I just think that others should be aware that polyurethane bushing are hard to keep "noise free".

The other thing is the bumps stops available from as far as I know which include the worldwide market are a harder rated bushing then what comes OEM. So this is another reason why NOT to use them unless you just like the colors!
