Front Shock replacement bushing/washer kit

Ordered this and just received them today. Large bushings look nothing like what is pictured and look like they are urethane vs. rubber. If they are urethane won't they squeak really bad? Was told I might as well replace the bushings for my new shocks and coils but was told they should be rubber like the OEM. Please let me know what the deal is and you (Toytec) should probably replace the pic online as it is misleading (pretty sure the ones pictured are rubber). Thanks for any info!

I am actually looking for replacement bushings for the OME lift. I contacted ARB USA just about an hour ago, we'll see what happens from here.

We have found that the urethane bushings last much longer and do not have any noise or squeaking issues. There are no drawbacks to urethane bushings vs stock that we have found.

Thanks for pointing out that picture. I will get it updated ASAP

Do you guys carry a lower bushing for the OME kit? It would be part number 110-110-060

I would hate to put my new shocks and coils together and have some bushing squeak enough that I would have to pull it all back apart to replace them with rubber ones.

No need to thank me for pointing out the picture.... a new set of uca's should suffice. I will pm you my addy!
