I pretty much have the same problem as described here. http://www.taurusclub.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=60533

I've pulled the tire and identified the problems, but I've heard so many names of this bar it's driving me nuts. Here is a diagram I found. http://img115.imageshack.us/my.php?image=taurusrearuf5.jpg
The bar I'm speaking of is marked 1 on the diagram, it runs from the knuckle to the frame about under the back passenger seat, they refer to it as a "Tension Strut". I can obviously tell the bushings are shot and that's what's causing my problem, But I'd like to replace the bar to. I found the bushings I think on Autozone.com. They are called Strut Rod Bushing if that's correct, but I have no clue how to find a bar cause i'm not 100% sure what's it's called. I've heard Strut Rod, Tension Rod, Tension Strut, Tension arm.


Any info or where I could order this bar or even if these are the right names for the bushings.

Why do you need to replace the whole bar? It IS supposed to be slightly "bent". Just get some replacement REAR STRUT ROD/TENSION ROD bushings at your local parts house or online at places like fastpartsnetwork, rock auto, or shosource.
