Control Arm Bushings and Bolt Questions


Recommended Posts

I removed my wifes suspension lift off her 2001 2500 quad cab. We went to the junkyard and they sold us control arms off of a 1999. Their fitment/buyers guide stated they would interchange. However the bushings are NOT the same ID as the cam ecentric bolts the truck came with.All of the bolts are different from the 1999 to the 2001.Replacement bushings state that they fit 1996-2002 1500-3500Doing more research I found a listing for the right bolts and not the bushings.Raybestos/Moog both show the bushings fitting but another site clearly listed a seperate listing.1996-1999 uppers and lowers had smaller bolts/bushings and 2000-2002 had bigger bushings and bolts.Does ANY one have the correct part numbers for 2001 2500 4x4 quad cab control arm bushings and the front ecentric bolts for the caster adjustment??Please dont look in a generic parts listing and look. They will ALL show they fit from 1996-2002. I need someone with some previous experience in doing this and KNOWing the difference.94 to 99 use a 12 mm upper and 14 mm lower. 00-01/02 use a 14 mm upper and 16 mm lower.12mm = 1/2"14mm = 9/16"16mm = 5/8"

This lift kit was really a lemon. But with 2" blocks in front and the lifts springs in the rear it sits 2.5" higher in the rear so it will be perfect for a horse trailer or hauling. Found out it was a 6" lift but the rear springs were only 5"...
