Josh, if you replace your pivot bushings with a nylon set, you should never have a problem again. Mine have been in there a few years now with no problems.

Great Pictures by the way!

brian,

I ordered the energy suspension poly radius arm bushings from summitt racing today. Hopefully that takes care of my problem.

thanks

Looks like a lot of fun guys. Wish I had been there. I'll have to make a trip up sometime. It looks beautiful.

Not really. I had my rock sliders bend up and dent my rockers good. I got a little rock lovin on quarter panel down by the muffler.

So far that was it for me.

I need to repaint my sliders so they don't rust, and both chrome rear quarter panels are bent again, but nothing I didn't expect.

Josh, those poly bushings squeek when they get dirty or dried out. If you can, get the black one's, they have silicon in them and don't squeek.

I ordered a camera just like yours, Fuji S5000. I need to take back my card reader because it suddenly decided it doesn't want to read my smart media card.
