Rubicon Express 1600 HD Track Bar bushing for under $10?

Has anybody used the Daystar Trackbar bushing that lists for $8.99 on their Rubicon Express Track bar? I just spent $26 on one from Rubicon Express today and I can't believe the ~$10 price jump.

Part Number: daykj07002bk

Track bar bushings for my RE 1600 last about 2-3 months on average.

This problem is you're using an RE track bar.

You do realize Daystar and Rubicon Express bushings are one in the same, right? RE is owned by TransAmerican, and they have a very close relationship with Daystar. It appears Daystar makes everything polyurethane for TransAmerican, across all their brands.

Save $17 on bushings sounds like a great idea.

I also want to switch out the track bar for a heavier unit that is compatible with the 5/8" hole that was drilled to accept the R/E heim mount. Metal Cloak? JKS?

Metalcloak or Currie TJS/TJJ for your 4" lift. Currie TJS, with proper bumpstop extensions, would be my preference for your application.

Uses stock housing bolt? Hmmm. This looks like a great upgrade to the Rubicon Express Track bar.
