I almost bought one. Glad I didn't. It seems the one from Ready Lift is the best one if you want something that won't ever fail.

The bushing will wear out regardless of manufacturer. It should last longer than a year, though. Have you tried calling Trevor to let him know about your issue?

I had a similar issue with mine. Actually ended up replacing it with another OEM unit as I had a significant amount of play and some clunking issues. Tried changing the bushings that Trevor sent me and still had the same issues. Trevor was helpful in trying to remedy the situation but nothing seemed to work that he advised the dealership's mechanic to do. I eventually gave up and went back to OEM and haven't had any issues since. I have the PMF trackbar sitting in my shed.

I've always heard good things about the PMF track bars, with that solid 1'' rod end bolted to the ball joint on the axle I would imagine even more stress would be put on that upper bushing mounting it to the track bar bracket. Give him a call or PM him on the Powerstrokearmy, name is NotStock. He's a busy guy but I'm sure he'll straighten out the issues. Good luck.

Trevor (PMF) is also on this site. Same username, Notstock and is also in the vendors area too. He was a pleasure to deal with but unfortunately, I had to remove his trackbar as I had other issues after installing it. Once I replaced it with another OEM unit, my issues seemed to be resolved. I still have his draglink on my truck though.
