are the powergrid links just for the front bar? I'm confused what our rear suspension consists of

Yeah, just for the front. The rear is an axle beam with an integral torsion bar & uses springs.

Man everyone on hee must not work on cars. It was pretty easy to do both and i didn't have to drop the cradle out and I DON'T have a lift.

All you do is jack one side of the car up put it on a jack stand. Then take off the rim.
Take of the nuts on the endlink. Put your jack under your control arm on the end and jack it up about 10" or so. When it is in the right spot the endlink just comes right out. Now that side of the swaybar is looses so you can change the bushing. The bushing just takes some finese because you can only see a little of what your doing.

But I started at like 7 and finished aroud 8:30 and I have never done it before. Learned the jacking it up trick because hitting it up wasn't working.

I guess you either had a two bolt sway bar bracket or just kept the old one bolt thing. If so its ez and will fail again.

I just kept the old 1 bolt POS. But I think the endlinks were the main problem.

Post sway bushings broken?

I'm a newer Redline owner of a 07 ion with about 60k miles on it. I have been noticing some clunking sounds over bumps & now has increased to loud clunk/knocking in my driver wheel when turning. I was on highway coming home & something fell & was dragging under the card till it finally broke off. I had to coast with steering & brakes to a stop in a parking lot! Clutch will not engage in any gears & but card starts & idles normally. When husband & i pushed car in neutral it makes loud pop noise when i turn with each wheel rotation.
I have been working overtime to pay for repairs but just dropped $800 for a friend to replace clutch so saving up..again. Any help would be great. I am getting towed since it is DOA to a close shop that can diagnose. I love my car but i can't keep putting this kind of money into it repeatedly.
Thanks

Sounds like clutch or more likely a axle

delrin is a crappy sway bar bushing.Too hard, will not stay in place, doesnt yield for sure, but do it if you want. It would be possible but really difficult to use the tabbed mount re drilled, its cheap so buy the real one with the real bolts lol from Crate engine depot or locally and avoid shipping.

goodluck

yeah i looked up the mounts, cheap enough not to bother with drilling old ones.

as far as the delrin goes, i was just thinking something that would stiffen up the front end; not flexing nearly as much as the rubber.

i also have teflon, pvc, some kind of really hard machanable rubber, etc..
all kinds of things i could use.

but on the other hand, i've read that with fwd cars sometimes you want the front to be able to flex so its easier to keep both tires on the ground for coming out of a corner....
i guess it depends on wether you want to hold flat in a corner or be able to power out of it better?
