    Just ordered 5100's for my 95.5 all stock truck.
    I see that they do not come with the bushings that connects the strut rod to the spring plate.
    Where can I get new bushings? All of the local parts shops can not get them. A few years ago I put on Ranchos and they came with the bushings. Checked other struts at the local parts shops and all others have the bushings.
    I have about 125000 on the current bushings so it seems that I should replace them.
    What do you guys think?

    Also, the truck is all stock... should I go with the original setting on the struts or add 1.75 or so to the front.

    Thanks.

    Welcome to TW! I think you can get them from the dealer. As long as they are not cracked, they should still be usable
