Default New Bushings

Hey everyone, so today i randomly made $100 more than i expected so im considering buying new bushings for my truck. I'd like to buy a complete set but not sure what exactly that is. Can you guys help me out and give me some suggestions of different companies to buy from?

Thanks in advance
-Derek

what kind of bushings? there are a lot of different bushings on your truck. They say the poly-glass one's or whatever are the best but they are expensive. The bushings I've had to replace I used Moog.

x2 on moog.

there energy suspension bushings are quite easy on the eyes, and those in the cab. Not to shabby price wise either.

3" lift shackles? omg what kind of T-Bar twist are you considering? If it's anywhere near the 2" max your truck will be crying for new front end parts really quick! lol & often too

you don't need new shocks but it does help if you get some shocks with 2 inches more play
