Suspension/Lift Gods, again I need advice...
The adventure continues with my front end on my 1990 k1500 with the 4" Trailmaster lift.
At this point I have replaced every arm, joint, shocks, stabalizers, etc. there is, and yet I still have alot of latteral sway in the front end. In addition, I found that the front right shock that I replaced was deeply dented from some part of the body hitting it when it flexed... It still does this...I thought I was bottoming out from the sound when it happened, but now with new shock it does the same thing...
What is your opinion on this: I think the upper control arm bushings are shot. Sears mentioned at some point that they could not tighten them anymore, and that they should be replaced. Even with everything else new, would this give rise to alot of front end sway, and tire tracking all over the place?
Now, with the Trailmaster lift, do I have to replace the bushings with OEM ones that seem inexpensive at the local parts store...or something special fitting from Trailmaster?
How difficult is this replacement? Is it as easy as just replacing the bushings, or does something else have to be replaced too?
Any advice you could lend in this regard would be very helpful.
