Mine is coming from the trailing arm slider, Is there a fix you know of ? or do you just deal with itI am assuming that the rattle is coming from the sway bar pivot bushings and not the trailing arm sliders. If so and you don't want to replace the bushings then try squeezing some silicone in there to keep the bar from rattling. Just a thought.[/b]
Yep, this was the fix for the 2002s. Super easy and cheap. The new inserts just have their ends flared out just like Caddisfly said. Picture an 'H' with a hole in the center where the swaybar goes and the top and bottom of the H spread out. They hold themselves in the channel in the trailing arm and prevent the idle rattling problem. Real easy to replace them... just remove the trailing arm rear bolt and swing the trailing arm out enough to disengage the swaybar, then slide the inserts out and replace.I put a set of the updated plastic inserts on my wife's 2001 500, and the rattle disappeared. The updated inserts seemed to have wider "flares" on the ends, if that makes sense. I believe I paid $10 or $15 (total) for both, and installation was easy.
(I removed the bolt on the rear of the trailing arm, pulled the trailing arm away from the body a bit, removed the sway bar from the bushing, slid the old bushing out, put the new bushing in ... )[/b]
