Just an FYI if anyone is going to replace their leaf spring bushings. The energy suspension bushings are 1.75", my spring and a quick search confirmed that the 1500 leaf spring has 1.5" bushings. I did find the correct size through Ruff Stuff Specialties.

Replaced the seals in the front axle the yesterday. Removed the carrier, took a piece of 1.5" pvc pipe and knocked the old seals out. Went pretty quick.

Got the ball joints installed and put the control arms on. Getting close to putting her back on 4 wheels. Just need to get the brakes put on

Got the calipers rebuilt and the u-joint installed in the right axle shaft. The left side decided to be difficult so I didn't get it installed yet.
