My guess, spacer is for different size bolts.

ok cool, now the bushings, do the raised portion face each other or go opposite of each other

Check your housing and make sure it isn't cracked near the mounting holes. Had one break on me and the housing had fatigued and broke. It ended up ripping the drive shaft apart.

Does pressure-washing the underside of a vehicle help in keeping the rust down to a minimum?

That sure looks like an unmaintained section of an ocean-going ship. 😱😳

Cheap powder coating and this new calcium chloride. It gets in and under everything. That’s why when I did the New truck, a rust bulleted everything.

All the guys that sand down here or plow are complaining that their trucks are getting eaten up in one season

@cobrajoe That’s an awesome truck you have. I’ll check your build thread later on. @TravisITGuy Nice work. Looks all new and clean. You’re doing it right.

I’m in FL, shame about deicing chemicals but it’s a necessary evil in saving lives. Sadly, over the years rust/ice claimed many a classic.

Here in Idaho; to deice roads they use sand and a thick liquid that looks like light-brown syrup, especially when it splatters on the side of your vehicle.
No corrosion.

Well I got the shocks installed and tires mounted back up. Truck drives great, the pulling I was experiencing was directly related to the broken radius arm.
