    Sweet bro! If I could borrow it when I'm ready that would be killer man! Just need to find or buy the install kit now.

    Stuff and things... maybe a little rust
    I went with these ones.

    https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B07ZHTMHSG/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    I figure even if they don't last as long as stock I will be able to clean up and rebuild everything on the stock arms and have them ready to swap back in down the road.

    I don't think there is anything too special about the SPC cam bolts, I had just read that the bolts and sleeve have a tendency to rust and freeze up so I picked them up in case. I ended up having to cut the sleeve on the passenger side to get it out so I am glad I got them.

    I haven't, since I already have these I will start with this and then if it is still there I will probably end up going down that road.

    Of course, not a problem. I want to say you can rent a kit from an auto parts store to get the new bearing pounded in there..

    Yeah that makes sense. To get OEM LCAs with all the parts you need to replace them it almost makes sense to just get dirt king or TC stock length LCAs. Which is what I would really like to get but I that's big money! I'll probably get the SPC bolts while I'm at it so if i run into the same problems then i have new bolts on hand.

    You have a pelfreybilt front bumper right? If you do how long have you had it, and hows the powder coat holding up?

    Thanks man! That's good to know. I'll probably replace the seal too. I'll call around the auto parts stores or look around more on TW for someone with the install tool. One more question, is the seal install tool and the bushing install tool 2 different tools?

    I’d imagine so, I never installed my seal because the OE one was fine. Might even be able to do it by hand because it is a rubber seal but I’m not positive on that.

    @SaphiraTaco wanna chime in on installing the seal? See a few posts up about the ECGS bearing.

    I have the tool as well, but not sure how easy it is to get it to you. (Its actually in the USPS box from the last member that used it). You don't need any special tools for the seal from what i remember.

    Thanks brother! That makes things a lot cheaper. Pretty sure vibes at 25-35mph is a tell tale sign of needing to replace the needle bearing.

    I think I'll just order the bushing and if i need the seal i can run to the stealership in puyallup and trade one for my first born child and $20.

    Get up to the speed where the vibes are, put it in 4wd, and if the vibes go away the bearing is the issue.

    I'll try that! Appreciate it. My only other guess is I need to install the rear axle angled shims under my leaf springs so my rear diff and driveline are inline better.

    All trucks are different, but I'm about +2 in the rear with no shims or carrier drop and have no vibe issues.

    My guess is the vibes you are getting are from the bearing. I was able to feel vibes through the steering wheel which was a dead giveaway it was from the front.

    Yeah, I figure the ball joint will be easy to change off the truck and I was looking at picking up this kit to replace the bushings.

    My bumper is Brute Force. I ended up just rattle can primer and bedliner, as much work as it was though I would probably powder coat if I were to do it again.

    Like @WrecklessAbandon said i don't think shims will solve your issue.

    Yeah I agree with you guys. My driveline was rebuilt 2 years ago with new u-joints/carrier bearing. i grease them regularly now, after seeing how bad the stock ujoints were I was pretty shocked.
