Now this information, not the poster, is only about thirty five years old, but, when I was selling parts in college the "G" suffix on the Energy Suspension part number meant it was black, not green, in color and graphite impregnated, hence the "G". Later on they added grease fittings as an option on sway bar bushing kits, not end links.

Happy Halloween from an old fossil.

All finished with the front, what a difference. Now I have a sports car again.
When you press the original bushings out, the big bang and the flying bushing makes you jump a little. Don't want to get hit.
Thank you again to rla2005 for the torque specs. Tight, tighter and max tight are not the safest specs when it comes to this .

Can the bushing be banged out using a 1 1/8" socket and a hammer ?

You probably could, but it would be way to risky as you might end up destroying the endlink in the process. If you could "borrow" a press that is the way to go. Will take you 30 minutes.

My Dorman complete end links just arrived and I might do a write up on them.

Well it sounds like when they are bad it's pretty noticeable. I climbed under the truck and mine is pretty solid. It squeaks a little side to side but not sloppy at all. Rubber where it mounts to frame is old and cracking. Would slop be noticeable by hand if they were bad?

Probably not because you can't put anywhere near the force on it the truck does. I would go by the noise and the main bar mounts are cheap and easy to fix.

Is everything on my truck just different?!?

I FIGURED IT OUT!!! We're looking at the diameter of the sway bar, not the width of the shackles. However, I'm going to leave this in case somebody else has the same question...

Top is the 32mm bushing that's in the regular kit. Bottom is the bushing that's special for the X. It looks like I don't need the special ones. (The answer is use the special ones, it's the bar diameter not shackle width.)

Those are for the middle part of the bar that attaches to the frame and either one would work. Those are very easy to put in especially with an impact wrench. I just bought 2 of those (blue) for $11.50 at O'riellys made by Moog. Mine are blue and harder than the stock ones. Update! My truck is very quiet now after replacing the end links and the main bar mounts.
