New guy, 1st Thread, energy suspension bushings

HI, Juts picked up an 03 Tj Rubicon 2 weeks ago. stock suspension but the PO put on a new set of 33inch Swamper TSL's. The jeep currently has no lift so the 33's are just robbing gas mileage and turning radius. Anyway the rear track bar bushing is worn and can only tell it if the jeep sways and then you here a knock. Looking to upgrade the stock control arms and track bar/sway bar bushings with the red energy suspension bushings. Where is the best place to order these parts? I have worked in race shops an build my own 4 link bars when i build my body dropped nissan but im new to the jeep world and the problem i see is there are too many companies and i dont want to get screwed. I have done a little research and quadratec seems to have a good selection. I also plan on removing the bars, having the powdercoated and reinstalled with the new bushings. The end plan is to have a mild maybe 3 inch lift with the 33's as the play tires and having the front and rear control arms upgraded to fully adjustable arms. Upgrading the bushings in it now will help with alignment and slop till i do the research on which would be the best for my application. This will be my daily driver so the 33's will be replaced this week with a good set of 31's i guess and being in Alabama, there isnt much to do so it will be a mild build. any suggestions on companies to order from? Thanks

I just ordered the Energy Suspension Front and Rear control arm bushing sets from Quadratec. I like Quadratec cause I can almost always find all the things i want at 1 place and only have to place 1 order.

Yea i have it shipped by the standard shipping method and it always arrives in 2-3 business days (Southern IL) Also there customer service has been great. I ordered one time and forgot a couple things that I needed to order. I called them up and got right through and they added the extra items to my order. Also had to return a part once as it was not what I expected (my fault) and I never had a problem. They received the part and credited my account without me having to call numerous times. Never had a problem.

Great, glad to hear positive things about companies, i think thats part of the problem is theres too many people out there and its hard to keep up with the bad ones.
