Cab Mount Bushing - Worth Upgrading?

All four of my cab mount bushings are dryrotted and need replaced. I'm a big fan of upgrading parts when replacing, especially when the only reason the OEM stuff needs replaced is because it was under-engineering in the first place.

I found a set of polyurethane bushing replacements by Daystar. It's part #KF04050BK. Has anyone used this kit before? Any good and worth the extra over OEM (I found it for under $100... almost what the dealer wants for OEM parts!). Any other options worth looking into?

And if anyone knows of any good reference material for the installation, I'd be grateful Never lifted the cab before!

Thanks!

Wow, go figure Thanks! What do you jack up on? It says 'floor board support'. Is that just a welded seam or something?
