Hey dirn, I was checking mine out yesterday also. The bushings on my shocks are definitly worn out and I had bushings to replace one of them. I need to order some more for the others. One other thing that I noticed while under it though might be where Im getting a lot of noise. The slip yoke going into the transfer case on mine is loose and I can simulate the noise by shaking it. Im also getting a leak from the seal. I get my clunking noise when accelerating or going through turns also which I think could be explained by the axle wrapping a bit under those conditions. Not sure if this helps you but you might check it. Looks like a SYE kit and CV driveshaft is next on my list of mods. This was never done on mine when the PO installed the first lift.
