    The only rubber bushings I could find were $60 a piece. Did you find any rubber bushings that are affordable for the cab?

    If I had to redo my bushings I try 2 places 1 lmc, 2 online anybody who had new oem quality. If I went for polyurethane I go for energy suspension

    Found a good deal on some 20x8 +0mm Irocs (5x5), was wondering if they would fit my burb which is 5/7 w/ rolled fenders, I'd run 245/40 tires on em.

    Is the ride height between a 4x4 and a 2wd the same from factory?

    I’m about to start a build on a 96 C2500. Just ordered a Belltech 3/4 drop kit. Gonna do an Energy Suspension urethane bushing kit also. Looking for good value brands in ball joints, tie rods, pitman etc.. Up here in the north you regret using cheap stuff real fast and usually use Moog parts if you’re gonna have a vehicle any amount of time but if I replace it all with that it’s gonna cost as much as the drop kit. Since my truck won’t be seeing the winters I can probably go with a cheaper brand but still want good quality, what brands do you guys recommend or have good luck with?

    Thought about it more and have gotten over the price. I really underestimated the hard part prices in my build. Knew this stuff wasn’t cheap but I was guessing that was cuz of labor cost and figured I’d be saving all that doing it myself and was surprised how much the parts actually are. Found a Moog front end rebuild kit for $396, center link be another $70, pitman an idler arm be another $150 if I needed it, not sure on idler bracket. Pretty sure all that has lifetime guarantee. It would be stupid to put urethane bushings on old sloppy parts. I still am curious what other brands are out there with good warranties.
