On your website the purchase options are "truss only" and with johnny joints...how do we order with OEM type bushings included per the description in the page?
Currently that option has been disabled. Unfortunately our supplier, Daystar,
decided to discontinue the bushings we needed for these kits. Until we have a new supplier, the option is not available. Sorry.
We do however offer the passenger side UCA bracket for the truss separately. It has a 2.0" diameter hole (for a bushing outer sleeve) and is made for a 2.0" overall wide bushing. The other option is to chop the factory UCA bracket and weld it to the truss as many have already done before.
Only if its done improperly. The best way to do it is to stitch weld small segments at a time and to move around where you're welding after you finish a stitch. Basically you don't want to let one area get too hot by welding for too long. Also, the part of the truss that attaches to the tube is 1/8" material so it takes less time to get good penetration. The sides of the truss are also on opposite sides of the tube to balance out where the heat is.
