    excellent, replaced the rubber bushings in my leafs and shackles, for energy suspension bushings, cause i had a gnarly squeak coming from the rubber bushings (yes they were torqued AFTER i had them on the ground and jumped in the bed a little)

    70$ for all around

    2-3 hours of work (wasn't sure hot to get the rubber bushings out, i ended up drilling holes in the bushings to loosen it up, and smacked 'em out later with a hammer)

    no squeak, better ride quality, well worth the 70$ and 3 hours it took

    agreed jake

    I did a front control arm bushing set on my old Maxima when my bushings wore out. I thought it was going to make the ride alot stiffer and maybe squeak, but neither happened. Handling improved greatly over stock, and no squeaking. A well worthwhile mod. Take any pics of the install?

    I've got front sway bushings sitting in a box waiting to go on when I do my drop. +1 for how beefy they look, and I'll be sure to post up how they feel after

    I just replaced my sway bar end links and could tell a big difference.

    No pics brandon /faceplam, i should have.

    While I had it apart i noticed my bolts were starting to narrow, due to water/rust/salt/road containments.

    I purchesed new hardware tonight, that will fit perfectly in the sleeves, but are shorter then stock, which is good, so i can actually fit an impact if i need it between my fenders and the nut!

    One more thing, have fun getting the front eye bolt out of the leaf on the drivers side....

    stock bolt, i dont think u can fit a deep well socket between the tank and nut, and a shorter one wont fit on the nut due to it being tucked in a bracket

    you're right tho, it's a lot easier then dropping the gas tank :proud:

    PLus one for them as well. Replaced my old worn out bushings on sway bar and end links. The Energy Suspension sway bar end links and sway bar bushing significantly changed the handling and ride of the truck :shake:

    they are awesome. they come with longer bolts than stock and with my control arms i had a hell of a time getting them back in. ive done my uppers, and still have the rear leaf bushings left to do

    Just ordered and got in my rear leaf poly bushings from them too for when I do the drop. Now I've got a pile of parts and no time :laugh:
