So my car makes a loud squeaky noise, super annoying. Found out that the anti roll bar is loose from both sides. I was just wondering should there be bushings ? Any place where i can find them? Thank you

If a bushing were completely perished like that, i would expect to hear knocking and banging sounds. I’m not sure what that is a photo of, but the sway bar on my ‘13 GT doesn’t have any parts that look like that. What year is your car?

Having said that, replacing all 6 bushings on the sway bar and end links solved a squeak for me. I got them from Amazon, Energy brand.

It looks nothing like my car either. Can you take a picture of the whole sway bar setup? Must be something aftermarket as it looks like it has another hole for adjustment.

Definitely aftermarket and I do not recognize who makes that setup. It looks like the bushings have been relocated to the links and the mount to the axle replaces the stock bushing. Whiteline perhaps?
Can you re-torque the bolts that attach it to the axle?

Yeah, the OEM bar is not hard mounted to the axle, rather it is captured in a bushing at each end. Your sway bar does not appear to use any bushings between the bar and the axle?

The first pic you show depicts a bolt mounted through a trashed bushing and the last pic also shows a thrashed bushing. Kinda looks like the stock bushing on the axle end and whoever’s bushing on the link to match the bar diameter.

It may be a Hellwig bar. That's what I have on mine at it looks about the same. I needed to replace my bushings last year. It had been on the car for over 13 years. I couldn't find replacement bushings on Hellwig's website so I called them and they sent me bushings and brand new fasteners at no cost.

RIP - You will be missed
Can't make it look like the Hellwig/Strano bar I have on my car. Mine has three adjustments, and uses Ford's OE chassis pickup bracket attached with two vertical-ish bolts.
