I think it ended up to be around $120 shipped to my door. I am replacing everything so figured while the truck is apart get it all. I am pretty sure the new leaf springs have bushings in them but, probably the factory ones. I will swap them out for the ones in this kit. This should include all the front end parts as well including the front sway bar.

Scoob I read a review on the leaf springs on Summit and the guy there said the energy bushings didn't fit the djm leaf springs. Your results may vary, he may have been incompetent.

Thanks, I believe my rear leaf springs are beltechs but then again probably the same company makes them and are re-branded djm's.

120 isnt bad, let me think a second or two...........

my leaf bushings cost around 30, the strut radius rods were about 20, the end links were 20, the sway bar ones were 10 and your kit comes with the a arm ones too. yeah thats not a bad price deal, plus it comes with many more sleeves for the bolts.

When I bought my Belltech rear leafs new from JC Whitney, they came with bushings already.

they do make a difference in how the truck drives. its just time consuming to change them but well worth the effort.
