    Got all the suspension piece from kert. Just what i expected. Exactly what i wanted, for the price i wanted, when i wanted them! Kert is a stand up guy that does quality work for a non quality price. heres the pics:

    they are front spring front eye hangers. i had him leave them undrilled so i could get everthing where i needed it when i mounted them. im sure he coulda done it (hell he offered too) but im going to wait until i mock everything up to start drill holes.

    Can you readjust your pics to be in a stacked top to bottom form instead of a stacked side by side form. Major PITA to have to scroll half a mile to the side LOL

    Do the front/rears allow for the larger sleeved bushing like the Ti units in the other post?

    no titanium, but yes you can use 1.5" bushing with these. :D it is 2" tube, .250" wall so they fit without sleeves. i ordered my busings from ord. they are the same as aftermarket lift spring front bushings, 1.5" diameter, 3.5" outside and 2.5" inside

    is there a zerk fitting provision so you can grease the bushings with out dissassembly and so you dont have to run the drilled zerk fitting bolts?

    My ride seems to chew the rear bushings, top and bottom, at or voracious rate. Maybe this would help....?
