I have a 2005 SE and replaced the front sway bar bushings. Made a noticeable difference in the way the car handles bumps...steering was jumping around a lot when you'd hit bumps in the road...
Anyway, I just bought some rear bushings and end links for both the front and rear. I haven't installed them yet but the end links for the front and rear sure look like they are the same. The packing list definitely has them listed as rear and front.
Does anyone know if there is, in fact, a difference between them and if they should be designated left or right?
Thanks!

They are not the same, front to back. The sway bar is of a much small diameter in the rear. They may have been mis-packaged. I recall someone else having a similar issue a while back.

I realize the sway bar itself is a different diameter and the bushings I have appear to be correct. I'm curious if the end links are actually the same or different. I might have to take a closer look and see if there is a noticeable difference or if they are oriented differently.
Thanks!

There are four, different sway bar links used on the vehicle. Fronts are different from rears and lefts are different from rights.
