Looks like a simple but painful procedure I've started watching videos my self and picked up a propane torch and a good long wrench for the front mounts so with the help of a buddy or two I'm hoping all goes well!! So far nothing has gone simple on this truck lol but at the end it ends up fixed some how

Hey all...FNG here. I'm about to take my 2010 6.4 back to my mechanic because of the bushings. This will be the 3rd, maybe 4th, time they're replacing them. The ride is quiet when I pick my truck up but when I pull a trailer they start "clunking" again. Pretty damn annoying!! Wish they'd get it right!!

Hmmm I'm no expert by far but that doesn't sound right lol maybe using poor quality bushing or maybe a torque issue?? Wish I had a better opinion for you!! Got mine ordered hoping it's one and done for a good bit

I replaced mine too, I bought a set of the red ones by Energy Suspension, I was not impressed, they were much shorter than the factory & they say it won't compress like the factory ones, but they did, it actually sat lower than the OEM, so I took and cut a 1/2 inch spacer to make up the difference. With the Energy Suspension models you will need to supply your own hardware. If I was to do it again, I would buy the S & B mounts, They do come with all the hardware. So if you can get the old ones apart, I cut mine with a sawz all, (reciprocating saw) & then bought new mounts from Dorman & tossed their OEM like rubbers.
