You mean the Prothane kits?
Shift bushing works
rear trailing arm and hub bushings work
front control arm rear bushing (the big huge one) fits
front control arm front bushing (the one in the front subframe) can fit, it may need to be trimmed a little (too wide for the stock subframe by a few mm)
Only thing left is the front and rear swaybar bushings. I haven't tried them yet. My guess is yes to the rear, and no to the front (and that's only if you have the correct size swaybars).

I have an energy suspension kit for the gd and was told it would work for my L. Haven't had a chance to install it though. Can't wait to feel the difference

nice, I'm guessing that in my setup only a set of sway bar bushings will be wasted then because I think it comes with a set of 20mm ones and I've got a 20mm rsb. Thanks for the info guys.

You can also order the parts separate from prothane. If you want just the rear, it's:

So I went to install a set of prothane front control arm bushings today. After getting everything apart I noticed that the inner diameter of the metal sleeve is 3/16" larger than the stock one. I noticed that even the oem bushing doesn't fit snugly on the control arm. I guess I don't get how this bushing works because it seems to me that this would create a bunch of play. Any thoughts?
