    I guess they worked out something sooner! He only rubs a little on the plastic. He's pretty stoked.

    Sorry man,I have to work all week into the weekend.

    Had a fairly productive day today. First I adjusted my parking brake. It's so much better now! Before I'd still roll with it fully engaged if it was steep enough.

    Then I installed my new crush washer onto my steering pump high pressure line in hopes it fixed the slow leak. So far so good! I'll continue to monitor as needed.

    Then I swapped my radiator bushings. It was very straight forward, with the hardest part getting enough room between the frame and the cab to get the new bushing in. A little persuasion with a hammer and all is good.

    No, not upside down. When you get out the oem ones and hold them side by side, the top OEM and the thicker energy suspension are the same thickness.

    Also the top OEM has this built in metal sleeve, the same as the thicker ES one. The top oem one just seems thinner because it's softer and squishes easier.

    It's a universal set, not something made for our tacomas. Technically there is no right side up or upside down. You'll understand what I'm saying once you pull your OEM bushings out.

    Do you have a link to the bushings you got? Also how difficult is it to replace?
