Default Sway Bar Bushings/Brackets

I've had a broken bolt on my front sway bar that resulted in one bracket being lost. I've been looking for new brackets and came across the Energy Suspension bushings for the truck and it almost appears that they have their own sway bar brackets that would replace the factory ones. Am I seeing that correctly? If that's the case I will just get these for the front and rears, instead of a new bracket.

Thoughts?

On a side note seems like asking on a local FB group just gets idiots responding with totally off the wall comments and rude remarks, just sick of that crap! It's like if you can't answer the question just don't get your arsehole remarks! Ugh.... Back to the real question I have above.

I would just get the Toyota replacment mount and maybe the poly bushings. I know Moog makes a thermo bushing to that is blue but do not recall the part number. They work great though when I had one about 6 years ago. Mark MCL68 had a write up on them.

For some reason I didn't get an email about your response and I didn't get a chance to check up on this earlier. I'll take a look at that post and see what I can learn from it.

I've had the Energy Suspension bushings and mounts for years. They work just fine and provide a zirt to lube the SB.

Haven't noticed any increase in squeeks because of the bushings either.

Edit: Looks like they changed the drop bracket on these now. Mine is a solid block of Al. The SB bolts are just longer than OEM and utilize the same mounting holes.

Not really sure how this new bracket re-positions the SB differently from the original location.
