What a timely topic.  Just the other night, I was surprised to find Energy Suspension urethane tie rod boots at Autozone.  I don't need any, but I remember at one time hearing that this type of thing wasn't available for whatever application I was looking for (I think it was Coupe GT).

They just had one size tho', I don't remember which one.

I replaced the sway bar bushing with a universal (sized to the bar)
Polyurethane from Energy suspension. Great cheap upgrade. You will need a
drill press and some home depot stock flat steel or aluminum to make a plate
to ride above the bushing and through the stock bolts. Don't forget to
lock-tight the bolts. Don't make the plate to thick or you will need longer


They also make poly ball joint covers, which I used on my 2002tii. 


While I'm at it, A fellow at Ireland engineering in CA, made me an amazing
hollow front sway bar for my tii, which ran under the oil pan from control
arm to control arm and was a truly impressive improvement. The whole thing
was around $130,and weighted about 6 pounds.

Group Interest? Group buy?
