  1. Yes I had that recall done. Dealer Seemed reluctant to take my 23 year old truck in for free body work. They used plates and did some kind of bedliner on the whole area both side front fender wells. Paperwork said it was ~700 total in the body shop.
  2. Thank for that response. I'm still trying to wrap my brain around how the front suspension can affect the rear sway.
  3. I'm referring to the infamous "roll over" sway that was supposedly caused by rear control arm bushings. The rear starts to sway uncontrollably at highway speeds. I put on the OEspectrum by monroe in the rear.
  4. I cant see any wear or play in rear pan hard rod, maybe I need to remove it to see for sure? I didn't think front control arm bushings could contribute to rear sway? I'm not getting sway up front. Tires have some outer wear but only up front. Alignment is good.
  5. On my 98. So I got moog replacement upper rear arms and pressed in new bushings for the rear lower arms. Did torque with wheels on ground, full tank of gas, truck empty. Of course the sway is nothing like it was before (couldn't go over 45~50). Well I still have death sway intermittently sometimes around 45 and 60 and in-between. Not as bad but still can build up like a harmonic enough to scare a woman. Also have new shocks and sway bar links and ends. Thinking maybe coils next? Someone save me from throwing too many parts at it. Thanks!

  7. Actually just crawled under there to address some rear sway stuff and honestly it doesn't look that hard to get to for me. I think its sitting behind an exhaust support bracket. I did wiggle the wire to the connector as I was soaking the bolt and I noticed OD not flashing anymore on start up.
  8. I finally got to this and I can't tell if these ring/cup is supposed to detach from the sway bar link bracket. Dont have a picture now but there are rings on the other side of the bushings and then ones on the bracket that look stamped on but I could be wrong. The links I got by moog are not what rock auto images showed. This link below from advance auto is what I got exactly. Look like self tapping zerk grease fittings. Eggish shaped bushings...Guessing the tapered bushing ends go towards each other?? https://shop.advanceautoparts.com/p/moog-stabilizer-bar-link-k80435/21880144-P
  9. Thanks all, just now able to get around to fixing this. Have P0500 and truck seems NOT to be in transmission limp mode and shifting OK (I have even been towing). Will check flash sequence later today. Reading about a possible plastic gear that fails and is NOT included with new sensor? That's of course after you manage to remove the old crusty sensor from transfer case. Thank God I broke, torched and extracted all those bolts for the exhaust heat shields + bracket that holds the harness plugs while I had it on a lift replacing the rear brake lines...
  10. Im getting a bunch of fast blinks from the "OD disable" light in my cluster every time I start the truck. All fast flashes. Coincidently the speedometer is no longer working. I don't believe the transmission is in "fail-safe" or "limp" mode as I can see/feel it shifting through gears. Anyone experienced this?
  11. Soon to replace to those links. Meanwhile I'm wondering what the physics of the bushings is in relation to the sway. Is it the lateral force mainly that a stiff, good bushing guards against to stabilize the rear?
  12. I have LT tires, will look into the panhard rod bushings and new rear sway links. I'm just wanting to be sure I don't "mask" the problem with other new suspension components. When loaded, it feels like I'm having the same swaying problem before any control arm bushings were replaced.
  13. The shocks are brand new. The weight back there is really unequally distributed right now. I'm really eager to get a trailer but now I still have this stupid sway problem!
  14. I just finished replacing all 8 bushings in the rear control arms along with new shocks. I used stp (not sure if this was good idea) to help ease the bushings into the arms along with the help of a 60 ton press. Concerned there might be slippage since the stp doesnt "dry" after application. Now I still have bad sway at low as 35-40mph over bumps, albeit the truck is loaded with a small generator, steel ramps, tool box, 2nd spare, big and small floor jack, couple 2x4 light fixtures, and a bunch of other junk back there. I had initially done the lower arm bushings 2 years ago and that resolved the problem 90 percent UNLESS it was heavily loaded in the rear.
