    nothing on the runner yet
    yeah i took the control arm off and the sleeve fell out it was pretty comical

    not so much as a squeak though

    if you ask me if the rubbers still vulcanized its still good

    I would agree. To be honest, I've just got itchy fingers and I need an excuse to work on something. The UCA bushings came bundled with my LCA ones, so I figured ehhhh why the hell not.

    I just wanted to post an update since I had originally flagged the Whitelines as possibly slipping or clicking:

    I traced the suspension clicks to a bad upper uniball joint and loose uca bolts (total chaos) just last week. Now, I do not believe the Whitelines have ever moved. I've had them looked at by the original alignment tech and he also says they haven't moved.

    Furthermore I am now four years into this mod without any squeaking of the poly bushings following the teardown, cleaning, and regrease I describe above.
