    I bought an adjustable Downey mid travel front setup from a guy here on the forum and I didn't look at the parts good enough before I started tearing off the stock suspension because one of the lower control arms is missing the metal sleeve in the bushing where it attaches to the truck. See picture below.

    Sleeve measurements:
    ID 15.88mm 5/8" .625"
    OD 25.60mm 1" 1.00"
    Length. 75.91mm 3" 3.00"

    Does anybody have any idea where I might be able to buy such a sleeve? I checked the stock ones and they are no where near the same size.

    I pm'd the seller about two minutes ago.

    Heard back from the seller, he didn't realize it was missing either and unfortunately he can't find it either.

    I'm going to call Fabtech, Total Chaos and QA1 to see if they can help does anyone have any other ideas on who to call or where to look?

    Update:
    I found the part at Total Chaos. QA1 doesn't have anything and Fabtech never bothered to call me back.
