Well i got the 4" sky kit on and alighned and test driven. All seems fine. Now I am doing the P/A 3" BL and daystar poly body bushings to match the complete set of energy suspension bushing that replaced all the rubber in the suspension. I am straight forward on how to do the BL. I got the passsenger side up and removing the old bushing. My daystar kit didn't come with any instructions unlike the skyjacker, energy susp., and P/A kits did. I just don't see how what they sent me replaces what i am taking off. here is a list of what i got from daystar through 4wheelparts.com/ Here is a list of what i got

4 small cone looking bushings : MO2188
4 big bushings : MO2189
2 medium bushings : MO2291
2 medium bushings : MO2292
4 long metal sleeves
2 short metal sleeves

I have taken off alot more rubber than they gave me poly to replace it with. does anybody have a list of the kit and instructions. I did a search and found nothing. I did look at DeRoach's write up on his poly bushing swap but it didn't answer these questions I have. Thanks for the help. As soon as this is done i can waste some more money on those 35's. :confused: Then save more for gears and lockers. :eek: Need to get her ready for the 4x4central trip to Moab next spring. :exporange

INSTRUCTIONS: Please read completely before beginning installation.
1. Note all body mount positions and respective parts (mount size, type, washers, spacers, bolts, shims etc.) before and
during disassembly. You may have to reuse certain factory hardware pieces that are not included in this kit.
2. If mounting bolts and nuts are rusted, liberally spray with penetrating oil.
3. Support vehicle body properly before removing mounts. Use a 2x4 about 2 long (or any other suitable size) between
jack and body panel to spread the weight load out so as not to damage the body. If needed, support the body in several
areas.
4, Loosen all bolts and nuts but do not remove.
5. Working on one side of vehicle at a time, remove mounting bolt and nut and raise body only high enough to replace
mount, never higher. Also check other areas on body and frame to avoid any interference problems when raising body.
See Fig. 1.
6. Replace mounts one at a time. After all mounts have been replaced torque bolts to factory specifications.
7. After driving vehicle for about 500 miles, re-torque bolts again. This is to insure that the bolts have not
loosened due to initial settling that may take place.
Some Fords use a unique one piece stamped washer and sleeve assembly. This type of
assembly can sometimes be difficult to remove, especially on older vehicles. Use Fig. 2 and
the instructions below to facilitate disassembly.
1. Remove body mount bolt from inside of cab.
2. Thread the bolts back in from below into bottom washer/sleeve assembly until bolt is flush with inside of washer. This
is to protect the threads during removal.
3. Insert a 10” long x ½” or equivalent punch into body mount from inside cab. Drive bottom washer/sleeve assembly
downward away from top assembly with a hammer.
4. The lip on the bottom stamped washer/sleeve assembly may become mushroomed, especially on older vehicles.
Before reinstalling this part, remove mushroomed lip to avoid any interference fit problems.

after an hour of phone calls, i finally got emailed the instructions and part list. no wonder i was so confused, i did have the wrong bushing kit. i posted the instructions with part numbers to help someone else if they need it. So I guess I will be waiting another month and a half for the correct bushings. I have had a handfull of problems with 4wheelparts.com, but they beat all prices. oh-well. Post-poning off-roading for even longer.
