Upgraded swaybar bushings 2004 GMC 2500HD

So when I was under the truck on my last off time, I replaced the failed bump stops. I did notice that the swaybar bushings were on their way out. I ordered a set Part #3.5213R (Replace R with B if you want the black). This is for a 04 GMC 2500HD 2WD.

The difference in handling is night and day. The handling and response is much better.

Sorry, I rotated this flipping photo several times and it still doesn't show up right.

Well when I was under there, and you can probably see in the photo, one of the upper ball joint's seal busted. So probably them, shocks,stabilizer, tie rod ends, and upper and lower a-arm bushings.

I thought about it, but the OEM ones were not too bad. I got these at a steal and had to snatch them up.
