    i went to put my new 5100's in yesterday, and they dont come with new bushings to go between the coil and strut? Luckily i had a few extras laying around. I couldnt believe this! no new washers either. I had to reuse my old rusty washers. Not cool. Or is this part of the deal with DSMS?:confused:

    Joe a little off-topic how was the install other than lack of hardware? I am throwing around the idea of leveling my truck.

    not bad at all..I think the original struts were in my truck from 96 thou. Besides being rusty, it was a fairly easy install..I have to do the other side thou..lol

    If ya want a hand, i need to try them out down the parkway.
