    Nope, your truck has "upper insulator washers" on it now. These washers look like metal disks/washers with rubber feet on one side. Over time the rubber teeth can wear and collapse under the torque of 4wd. The washers go in-between the diff bracket and the frame of the truck and act as a rubber cushion. I was including the upper insulator washers in my kit just as an added perk. But they are a pain in my rear to make... so I'm not :D

    You can use your original upper insulator washers with my kit without a problem. Should yours need to be replaced that part is still available from Toyota (believe it or not).

    My bushings came out right away and the remaining rubber crumbled away and wiped off mostly. Still can't get some of the shit out but I guess it will come off after sand blasting them. Ordered my new ones on Wednesday.

    MORE FIRE!!! Take your torch or flame to the remaining rubber on the bracket until it sizzles. Then let it cool down and what ever was left in there will wipe out with a paper towel. Fire makes the entire process easy and struggle free.

    Absolutely!!! Whats going on around here??? I'll talk with the management o_O


    Edit: @Prayn4surf @Squeaky Penguin I see your guys orders and I know what the problem is/was.
    Somehow in my tinkering with the website I put the diff bushings on a "shipping exception". So all my diff bushing orders for the last two weeks never shipped :confused: Sorry Guys! and thank you for speaking up!! Everyone's diff bushings are shipping out Monday.
