Total Rear Supsension Upgrade Pictures
3 Attachment(s)
Finally got my rear end suspension upgraded. Just have to replace the black bushings on the rear sway bar to red, and get red energy suspension leaf spring bushing for the back of the leaf spring. The front has a Aluminum bushing set that came with the traction bars for the mounting brackets. Painted the traction bars silver after scraping them really bad with clearance issues due to the helper spring, which as you can see I removed. Gonna get McGaughys helper air bag set up in a couple months to fix the load capacity. Enjoy the pictures and ask questions if you have any. I did...

Thank you Sir, I was running on the tredmill this morning and could not stop thinking about how I really wanted all the bushings to be red instead of black. I called hellwig and energy suspension both said that they only come in black for that specific rear sway bar set up. I was like not happening I'm gonna put the ones I got for the front sway bar on the back and see if they work. They are the same length but a little smaller in diameter so I was worried about the strength. But then I was like the energy suspension end links are made for sway bars they have to be hella strong. So I put them in place of the black and silver end links the rear sway bar came with and they fit just fine. Ordered the red bushings for the axle today had greasable 28.5MM but the non greasable fit so much better so have to wait for them to get here. Then replace the rear leaf spring to red and the rear end is almost done except for helper air bags for towing or hauling anything heavy, already bottoms out and burned a bunch of rubber on the wheel well lip hauling an engine and tranny for a friend.
