Huh, yeah. Sway bar links are important.

I was looking over my wife’s ‘02 Explorer this weekend, changing the oil and doing a quick once over while I was under the truck. Noticed the front sway bar links are broken. Both links have missing bushings. I thought the truck handled poorly, now I know why. I’ve spent the past few hours playing the front end dance-a-thon of raising one wheel up, then down to get the new links in.

Now, it rides much better. Far less roll and pitch when taking a corner or hitting a bump. The best part, is my wife didn’t even say “Thanks”. I’m gonna have me a beer, or two.
