    I'm about to take the wheel off again. what should I look for that could be rattling? About everything else is replaced on front end except the a-arm bushings.

    these shocks will destroy what is left of old suspension parts and bushings. Now that 6 months has gone by the shocks are nice and broken in and I love em.

    replacing bushings now. installing new leafs. waiting on new bolt(had to cut left side eye bolt on leaf) from toyota this morning to put the rear end back together. And hopefully just end links up front. o and will install ome 881 springs.
    the 5100's are stiff out of the box. however after driving on these gnarly roads around here I am glad I got them. I would have blown out some regular shocks by now. I hope my lower control bushings are alright will test later this weekend. but the end links that I put on new toasted out shortly after putting these shocks on. transfer of energy to weakest links is what I learned,, i think?
