    Installed mine last weekend, easy one banana job! Oh what a difference as well, it is now nice and firm in front when 4WD engaged, no more clunking!! (My originals almost
    were non-existent..)

    Very happy:thumbsup:..

    hey guys what kind of symptoms did u guys have to realize your diff bushings were bad?

    I have a humming coming from the driver side front tire and when i spin that tire with the truck on jack stands the diff moves up and down but when i spin the passenger tire the diff stays solid...

    A nice thunk/clunk when getting on and off the gas in 4WD was a pretty good indicator of some wear in there. Mine were totally shot and I'm really happy with how the new bushings feel..Made a huge difference. As for your diff moving around when you spin the DS tire, that sounds like a bent CV axle to me:eek:...hope I am wrong, but that's where I would look towards for that particular symptom... Good luck!

    I ordered some parts from this guy but still have not received them yet, or gotten any email confirmation of my order and and shipping information. I'm getting worried.
