[DML] Re: Front Shock Bushings....

There are two styles of OEM shocks, some with wide bushings and some 
with narrow. I bought a set from DMCH a Long time ago (maybe 1998?) 
and they supplied some spacers to make the "short" style fit in the 
lower arm. You do not want to install them without some sort of 
spacer to take up the space or you'll bend up the control arm as you 
tighten it up. 

If anyone happens to be looking for OEM shocks, front or back, give 
me a holler (although, with all the other (better) options out there 
I can't imagine why).
