    Replaced the jounce bumpers in the front end a coulple weeks ago. Mine have been bad for a few years but I just ignored them.... didn’t think they did a lot. Turns out the front end is a lot smother with the new ones installed.
    I read about these on the diesel place a log time ago., they are for a 2007 and up Duramax with the z71 option. They are stiffer than the originals and a direct fit.

    Nothing left of the old ones , and had a hell of a time getting them off. The nuts were a ball of rust. Had to grind them out. Not much room to get a grinder in there but I got them after a lot of time and some blood.

    To gory to post.

    I got one side of the sway bar disconnected cause the link was rusted and I just cut it off when I replaced a axle. Can`t tell the difference with out it so I never bothered. Might just pull the rest of it out.

    I had the same experience on mine, and replaced with the same bumpers. Turns out those things are REALLY important to the front suspension working correctly.

    I bet they will look a lot like my old ones. Colby’s need to be replaced too.

    My new set of 255/85/16 Toyo M55s I’ll get them put on next week.

    Looking for a different set of wheels for them, my factory PYO aluminum wheels are wore out! If I can find anything this weekend I’ll use the chrome steel wheels I got.
