    Are they all the same or do some fit better than others?

    I haven't seen any except the ORD one. Even if there were others, I'd buy from ORD just because Steve Watson takes an active participation in this site. Keep the money close to home!

    Jim,
    You can get the repair kit thru JCWhitney too. I did the mod on my truck right before the ucp ride and it handled so much better on the road., plus I did the bolt in brace too.
