Searching for rear swaybar bushing

My 2008 Georgetown F53 chassis needs rear sway bar bushing replacement. Anybody have a MOOG part number that you used as a replacement on your F53. Brought moog 200222 which is a 36 mm dia. part that fits the sway bar. However, the Mounting Bracket is 1/4 inch wider than the poly bushing. The bushings off AMAZON have no dimensions so we are leery to buy them. I cant locate another part number off of Google. HELP

I have no idea what a "MOOG" is but this fellow makes high-quality F53 sway bar bushings: https://www.ebay.com/itm/27066124074...0AAMXQhuVROBxO

"MOOG" is a long time automotive suspension and steering parts supplier.

But the link NXR shows is going to be very hard to beat!

The bushing does not have to be as wide as the metal bracket that is bolted down over it. That bracket should have bends formed on each outer edge for strength. As long as the bushing fits between those bends, it will work fine.

Now if the diameter or outer measurement doesn't come close to the contour of the bolted on hold down cover, that is different.

This is the type bracket I have and this is the ebay site for the bushings I bought for my 2012 GT on a 2011 chassis. Swaybar diameter about 1-7/16". Just in case yours is the same.

Thanks Bubbles, mine is exactly like yours. The MOOG 200222 bushing is poly so it will not flex to allow that style of bracket to fit inside the dia of the bushing. It would make the set up useless as there will be movement between the sway bar and the bushing that defeats the purpose of this type of set up. Now if you used the ebay part for the poly bushing to both fit that bracket dia as well as the bolt holes in the frame I will be a happy camper. Will order it asap. Thanks

Click Contact Seller on the eBay listing and ask him to send the dimensions you need. Many of these sellers will make a different size if you need it.

Are you sure? I remember Moog as being one of the first if not the first music synthesizers (1964). Some of you kids probably weren't even born yet.

Three different guys...with the same last name.
The suspension company
In July of 1951, Bill Moog, Art Moog, and Lou Geyer pooled $3,000 and opened Moog Valve. They had limited resources, a primitive work facility in the corner of a dirt-floored airplane hangar, only a couple of potential customers, and one great product. Problem solving depended on their two resources: persistence and creativity. For Bill, Art and Lou, the word “can’t” did not exist and they inspired everyone who worked with them to do the same.
https://www.moog.com/about-us.html

The music synthesizer
Robert Arthur Moog (/moʊɡ/ MOHG; May 23, 1934 – August 21, 2005) was an American engineer and electronic music pioneer. He was the founder of the synthesizer manufacturer Moog Music and the inventor of the first commercial synthesizer, the Moog synthesizer, which debuted in 1964. In 1970, Moog released a more portable model, the Minimoog, described as the most famous and influential synthesizer in history. Among Moog's honors are a Technical Grammy Award, received in 2002, and an induction into the National Inventors Hall of Fame.

Update: Just able to measure my spare with mm tape and it is 36mm as sold on the referenced eBay site. They also came with the silicone grease for install.

Handy tool

I have one of these in each of my toolboxes. Really handy for things like measuring the diameter of a sway bar. In fact, I used it for just that purpose last year. It has both English and metric scales and measures width (and diameters), inside diameters, and hole depth.
