The pictures say it all... Bushings purchased by me on the left. Bushings supplied for free on the right. There isn't too much difference, can't understand why the ones on the right made all kinds of noise.

So tell me what I am looking at.


Are the black bushings the TSB/06 bushings and the clear/white/blue color bushings the stock for 04/05?

my guess is the white/blue are the TSB replacements and the black is the 06 standard.

So us 06 guys get the good ones and the 04/05 guys with the free warranty install have to trade their cars in to get the good ones? Is that how it goes :stirpot:

Most of you guys cant do the install. Its not that easy. Let James get the bushings and put them in. While your'e at it, do the magnaflow exhaust.:thumbsup:

Then your'e getting serious.

To install the bushings you have to drop the rear cradle. That's a little more involved then the sway bar install. The bushings can be installed at the same time but it is more work...

FYI - The two 06's that we got in did not have the bushings installed at the factory and the cradle mounts looked the same as the 04/05.
