    I installed those exact same LCAs as well about 2 months ago, its super nice they come with ball joints and bushings already installed. My only gripe was none of the joints had greaseable zerks already installed. For the price and quality though they really cant be beat.

    So, my front window tint was getting blueish so I took it off a few months ago.
    Got them tinted last night after work. 35% so LE's leave me alone.
    Also got the windshield strip (20%) for free because I paid cash.
    Back & rear windows have 20% on top of factory.

    Forgot to mention, I had the local guys add some anti-seize to the new cams. Plan is to check them once a year.

    In for details too, are they rough country seat covers? That RC looks familiar.

    It's good stuff, just clean the boot best you can to get a good base seal. Maybe use some rubbing alcohol to get any oils off. It's easy to apply. Use it as a backup on my airbag connections.

    The factory body mount bushing are crap and wear out and get "squishy" over time. Increased offroading will wear them out quicker. These are a firmer replacement for them and make the body not move as much at the point of the frame attachment. There are six points of contact between the frame and the truck body. 3 on the driver side and 3 on the passenger side. the front 2 of them are for the radiator mount up front, the middle 2 are right behind the wheels, and the rear 2 are at the back of the cab.

    Yes, they're ES 8.4109 kit. They come in black or red. I dont think I really remember choosing a color, but I got red and it is what it is lol.

    The colors!

    Yea, some of the oem bushings are in bad shape. @dpele check the thread on radiator support bushings on here and you'll see some really torn up bushings with as little as 60k miles. I have 156k on mine and thought it was a worthy replacement. The front 2 bushings take about an hour to swap out.

    Does this make the truck ride extra rough on the street?

    It will be a little stiffer yes, but the body mount bushings are just a small part of the ride quality. Your suspension is about 90 % of the ride quality.

    Everyone is going to have their own level of sensitivity. But in general, if you're changing out to a firmer durometer, it'll transfer more vibrations. Swap just the radiator support bushings and it won't be as noticeable compared to changing all 6 bushings.
    You can still buy oem if you want to change out your bushings but not go to Energy Suspension. I don't think you'll hear anyone stating they regret the ES swap though.
