did you get the right bushings? if they're like the 5100's they dont come with the right ones...you need the hourglass ones, i think 3/4"?

yes, you need the 3/4" bushings. adding a little grease to them helps slide them on ;)

I put the 5150's on about a month ago and I went to Home Depot and got a 5/8" bit and drilled the bushing out, and lubed it and it went on great.

I know that energy suspension makes an hourglass bushing that fits the 5150's. The part number is 9-8108. In Canada Lordco and Napa Autoparts carries these, but you yankee's are on your own! haha.

4WPW usually stocks bunches of 'em (the hour-glass, 3/4" I.D. Energy Suspension bushings), so if you're close to one, you can get them there. (Well, at least the Dallas 4WPW store does - I've already bought 3 sets of them there over the years with no problem). Other 4x4 shops have been known to stock the Energy Suspension bushings as well.
