Didn't you do a sway-bar thread a few weeks ago?

Never had an in problem I used to 2 piece poly. Out was the b&^^%. seized bolts in them. burn them with a propane torch to get them out. Then grease the poly and they slid right in. I might have used a C-clamp to press them in.

Is your K5 lifted?

I did the 2 piece poly recently as well. They came with installation lubricant. I pressed the old ones out with a socket and a vise. It was pretty easy as far as suspension work goes.....

yea the inner ones though and today i decided (bored ) to take it out rock auto wants $26 for all 4 bushings

I cut the mushrooming rubber off easy enough with a hack saw drilled 4 holes through the rubber sprayed pb blaster with the straw into the holes took a hammer to the steel sleeve and turned it back and fourth with a pair of vise grips they cam out ok like that

no it is not lifted

it sounds involved but they were just that worn

burn them, it stinks, then they pop right out. No fighting with them at all.

i have done that before they were so worn out this was pretty easy.
one of the problems im running into with the truck is last year i coated amost of the truck with CRC heavy duty corrosion inhibitor. and when it dries its like a thin film of bees wax and BOY short of acetone it dose not want to come off.

so although it stops rust from spreading (water beads off my frame) its a bugger if you want to paint things pretty

Mine are one piece poly and I was never able to get them in all the way.
No matter how lubed up they are, just left it be and put it together.

I run 2 piece polys on mine. I have 4" of lift and if you adjust your sway bar mounts on the truck (mine are slotted) it should work.

i kinda like the soft ride without the sway bar the truck seems better suited for play time without it i might go this rout except i think its only for lifted trucks

what do you guys think?

Ive thought about using them, but the geometry on it doesnt make sense to me... It would work better on lifted trucks though!
