    Right now, I'm only looking for urethane sway bar bushings. I will be upgrading all the suspension bushings eventually. If I can find some, that is.

    So far, I'm only finding 1gen bushings:(

    Energy suspension is looking like a good bet. At first glance I see they have greasable bushings, nice. I'll have check back later on my computer to get more specific model and othet details.
    Thanks for the heads up!

    Seems like the new catalogue is coming, maybe call them to ask what's available for the 05+ Taco...

    From Kevin Lake at energy:
    "Sorry we are still at 04 on the Tacos THANK YOU"

    They have a guide for measuring your bushings and holders. We should be able to make one work.

    Urethane bushings suck , they squeek if you dont grease them every few months.

    IMO there is no use for them on a truck. You want rubber in most areas to absorb some of the impact if you offroad.

    if they have 05 bushing they have all of the tacos covered. 05-11 are identical in all regards except for some minor electrical changes in 08, 09, and 11
