    Sounds good. I'll give that a shot! I have one seized and have to replace both front cam tabs that are flattened. So I'm going to do all 4 bushings and all 8 tabs while I'm there.

    Thanks for the help sir.

    Crom.. what did you torque your leaf springs down to? 89ftlbs as spec'd? The reason is I'm getting some nice barn door creaking from these as the poly rubs on the mounting bracket. Wondering if lowering the torque will free up some tension.

    To the best of my knowledge he is doing just fine. He had workplace stuff come up that was going to suck down a boat load of time for a few weeks. So I'm guessing he is wisely offline for a little bit until he gets over that hump.

    Hope it's just work and nothing wrong.

    Just did this! Thanks for the idea. Super cheap and will be helpful for hanging stuff from hooks like water canteens and other random stuff while camping out of the truck. Besides tie down points.
