dual front shocks

I bought my truck with the dual front shock setup and is getting a lot of movement between the shock mounts and bolt. Is there a bushing in there that can be replaced? If so, anyone know where to get them? No idea what brand the kit is.

I'm at work right now, will post pics later. It's not the shock bushings because the bolt is not loose in the shocks but loose inside the mount where the bolt runs through to hold the shocks.

Energy suspension or daystar make good good bushings you can get them at most tire shops or you can go with the regular rubber bushings the worst thing people do is overtighten the bolts but most shock bushings now come with a metal bushing that goes inside the rubber one to prevent overtightening

I just use a bench vice when I did mine put a little disc brake grease on the bushings to help them slide in.
