Swapped them out this evening, the inside of the one side turned to a grainy mess that spills out if you poke it. Ugly for only about 800 miles and 2 months.
Has anyone ever done a "kicker" or angled washer to help with rear bushing bind?

sorry to hear about your bushing issue, sound like exactly what had happened to me. I have a spare set from when this happened to me; however, they came in a non LR box and I'm afraid they too will quickly die. A friend had just ordered a set, they came in a LR box, so I'm hoping getting OEM ones now won't be an issue.

What a mess... nothing like spending a few days wheeling to find you can't safely drive home because your bushings are shot.

Good news is I'm getting quick at changing them since the parts don't have time to rust and seize. In an hour and 20 minutes I had both sides swapped with a break in the middle to peel a pound of shrimp and make up my tequila cane marinade.
