    Im getting a clunk from my LCA bushings. They need to be replaced. The only aftermarket ones i can find are for 2wd. Anyone have any sources for these?

    pretty sure theres a difference between them.

    I hear you on the poly bushings.. trying to stay away from them as well.

    Yeah, if you're going to use them you should be able to grease them with the correct grease that won't eat them. They will squeak otherwise.

    I've used Lubriplate food grade grease on Energy Suspension bushings instead buying the spendy sh!t in the little tubes.

    What was your clunk from? Also, I think it was you, but in another thread i think you posted that you were having alignment problems with your camber not being in spec? I have the same problem and I'm having a hard time tracking down the problem. What did you do about it?

    i never had any issues with alignment. i searched the forum and found clunks where usually from LCA bushings.. turned out my coilovers where just low on nitrogen
