    2nd Gen LCA's, not sure about fitment for other years.

    After some searching through all the different methods I found the full set for a decent price.

    Seems like a lot of people have gad trouble getting their bushings out or having mixed results as far as noise goes shortly after install.

    This set right now is about $178

    most bushing sets are around $100

    Is $78 worth not having to replace bushings? you decide.

    Also comes with a 10 year warranty.

    10 year warranty!!! I’ll take a set. I have order from them before and their customer service is very good. Got a replacement window regulator with no hassle from them.

    Might want to look into cam tab and bolts pricing. You may or may not be able to salvage them and they are not cheap.
    I cut two of mine out :sawzall:other two came out with an air chisel.

    Almost the same story here. Cut all four of mine. Definitely look into new cam bolts.

    Also I don't believe any bushing styled after the OEM's are going to last ten years, unless you never leave the pavement and you drive less than 10k a year.
