I have upgraded the shocks on my 2014 JKU Sport with shocks from a Rubicon. The sport shocks had built in bushings, but the Rubicon shocks seem to only have bare metal.

Are there bushings for the lower mounts for the rubicon shocks?

They definite have the same bushings for the top mount of the shocks.

The bottom mount of the rubicon shocks do not have built in rubber bushings, and the sport shocks have built in bushings.

That is what I figured. I have also searched extensively looking at Rubicon shocks for sale with pictures. They are always pictured without bushings.

I spoke with the local jeep parts counter, and he claimed to not be able to find any bushings for the lower mount in his catalogue.

Exactly. Took a screwdriver to the painted bushings.

Surprise. There is rubber under that shiny red paint.
