also check the search for the 40, that's how you'll find the sway bar bushings.  The others are listed under 01 Mirage, and 95-96 Evolution. 

They ship fast as well and don't have crackhead prices.

oh, and if you order the extra castor front control arm rear bushes they show yellow on the site but when they come they are black poly and match the hardness of the whiteline front lca bushings.

Looking awesome Teekay!

This evening I finally had some free time and figured out the source of a horrible whining coming from the passenger side of my 2004 V40. Had three mechanics tell me they couldn't hear anything and had one insinuate that I was wasting his time.... So this is a huge relief and I can't wait to show the guy this video.

Do you think the issue is bearing quality? Or bracket design/location? The passenger side axle I have installed right now is from "Sur-Track" and barely a year old. I'm thinking in my case, when I hit that frost heave, the oil pan and engine moved a good amount and torqued the hell out of the bracket which in turn torqued the hell out of the bearing. I'll see if there is any visible damage when I replace it.

I'm debating giving Raxles a try, heard good things.

I think both of mine were Cardone select. The ones with the bad bearing were probably 2-3 yrs old. I couldn't say if I over tightened it though.

CARDONE SELECT 669229 (66-9229) (Rock auto) FRONT LEFT
CARDONE SELECT 669230 (66-9230) (Rock auto) FRONT RIGHT

If you get the ones that aren't select, the ones with A1 Cardone, I think they are the reman ones? but also take a core. I'm told if they get back their own "select" as cores they just throw them out.
