    I still had a soft creak at parking lot speeds after the bushing change. Turned out to be upper and lower spring perches. Boeshield T9, still quiet 4 months in.

    I ended up taking my driver's side off yesterday and noticed the little sleeve on the larger puck was pretty damaged. Perhaps I didn't install it properly? I put it all back together and took a spin around the block and all was quiet again even after a few break tests and evasive turns. Time will tell...might have to replace that mount.

    Did you have a hard time aligning the stock bolt on the driver side? I had to use quite amount of force to make the bolt sit through the bushings. The noise this time around is coming from the passenger side again. Might have to take a look and retighten everything again.

    Sorry for the late reply, I haven't checked back in on this in a while.
    I believe the metal on yours will just pull off and look the same as mine. Makes it easier to get into position and then you can stick the metal back together.

    I haven't yet, it's been 8 months an 5,200 miles since I did this. I originally did it when the truck was 8 months and 5,800 miles old, so only just getting to about the same mileage as I had on my stock bushings when they went.

    The first time I did have a hard time aligning them up on the drivers side. PITA. This weekend the holes were much more inline. My passenger side was spot on. When I initially started hearing the noise, I checked the drivers side and discovered it was pretty loose. I tightened it up and the noise stopped for a few days and then came back. Your issue might hopefully be as simple as it being loose.

    Question are you guys greasing these up when your installing them? I'm getting ready to do mine today and was wondering if I should lube them or not. Thanks

    I used some Super Lube to just put a light coat on everything but I had to reinstall my driver's side so I'm not sure you want to take my advice.

    That just means you have more experience with taking it apart and putting it back together. Hahaha!

    does the large puck go above or below the frame mount?

    Gave this a shot to see if it was my “clunk” it was not, so the search is still on. Regardless, I’m glad I did this mod after seeing the factory mounts were definitely on their way out after the swap. Anyone with some DIY skills should do this in my opinion. Started on driver’s side and it took a little while, after doing the driver and knowing what to do, the passenger took less than 15 minutes.

    Found my clunk, loose armor, most likely my front plate because I checked the other two previously. :facepalm:...not sure anyone cares but if you’re armored, check them ALL.

    How did you end up installing? The mounts I got look like yours. I plan to follow the OPs instructions with my parts. Probably next weekend.

    It’s been a while since I’ve done this, but if I remember correctly that metal piece is separate from the rubber, and can be pulled off and put on the other piece, even if it feels like it is stuck there.

    I’m not sure if it makes a dofference where that metal piece is when you start, but I believe the pets are the same and you will end up in the same place at the end.

    I think I took the metal off in order to install the rubber easier, the little nipple could bend, and I didn’t need to lift the body off the frame as high. Also less chance those metal rings will fall off when doing this.

    For what it is worth, I now have had these bushings in for roughly 16 months and 9,000 miles and still silent, I know that isn’t much time, but better than the stock bushings did.

    Thanks for the info. I just installed them. Mine had a metal nipple but also had a thin layer of polyurethane and another inner metal sleeve. Front end noise is gone!!!:yay:

    Is the ride more harsh, any extra cabin vibes, with the poly bushings?

    I honestly can't tell any ride difference but I'm also riding on icons no sway bar and st maxx tires. The amazing part is the pot-hole vibration noise is gone! So happy right now lol:D
