    Found some of my shock bushings need replacing today. Would like to replace with a polyurethane set if possible. Thought they would be easier to find.

    So, talking to myself again, but this is what i found.
    1. Is from the help section, good old ford part with zero issues, ran for a week before replacing with OEM.
    2. Universal poly from Russia (with love) I'm guessing. Only set of poly i could find (from Jeff's).
    3. OEM from Toytec (listed above) with some silicon paste prior to install. Can't see it in the pic, but there is a small collar around the hole.
    4. Eibach (stage 1 lift) Lower came off the driver side. Upper from the passenger. Bit over 37k miles on them.

    Looking at the 1st pic posted of the driver side, there is an extra washer that was installed, sitting on the "top hat" and below the bushing. Schematic of the front end doesn't list it. Passenger side didn't have it. My bad.
