Lower Shock Mount Bushings GONE??

I was doing some light wheeling today when I heard something knocking around up front. I stopped and looked around each front wheel and didn't see anything that seemed out of the ordinary. I turned around just to be safe so I wouldn't be stranded. I snooped around a bit more and found the problem: On the both front shocks, the lower bushings are gone. One was completely gone, and a few shreds on the other were still hanging on. The shocks are under 3 months old, and have not been wheeled too hard, or often. What's the deal?

Skyjacker had a bunch of bad batch of shock bushings, they're aware of them and will replace them at no cost.

call your seller right away, wouldn't want them to say oh your warranty ran out 4 days ago. They should send you new bushings free of charge.

I think the HELP line of parts at your local parts has the bushings.
They MAY be as high as $2.

Style doesn't matter - as long as they fit inside the loop and over the pin tight.

by style thats what i ment, different sizes and different shapes. If you go this route, go with tight fit, not loose. You're better off getting the tightest you can in there and pressing it in then getting loose bushings.
