    i am working, paint and body, on a 96 4x4 for a customer and we are putting all new bushings in. because i am backed up a little, i was having a mech shop close to me do the control arm bushings, upper and lower. the just called and said that they pressed out the sleeve with the bushing and that the new, energy suspension set did not have the sleeve. that the bushing was to small for the hole without the sleeve. this was my first set also, another reason i sent it to them. well, i cant find just the sleeve. i wanted to know if anyoneelse has ever had to deal with this problem and what the cure was or how they fixed it

    Damn that sucks. I got the master set and have been waiting to do the control arm bushings till I need an alignment.
