You should be fine after you tighten it and compress the bushings.

You're lucky, Ice. I did mine and no difference at all. The old ones were turnable by hand, but must have still been tight enough to work like they should

Are you sure you tightened them enough?

Hmm, I tightened until the bushings began to bulge but i could go tighter. The old bushings were so hard that i know they didn't have any more give than these new ones do....I just tried fixing a problem i didn't have.

I have a better idea. Buy just the BOLT from GM. Get 2 of the 10026678 bolts (trust me, you want new....don't re-use the old), should run just shy of 4 bucks each. Then go to your local hardware store and buy two 8mm 'nylock' hex nuts. Fit them to the bolts to make sure, and try to get stainless steel. Now go BACK to Autozone and buy the Energy Suspension kit # 9.8105RC Bushing set.
Isn't anyone worried about the bolt for the rears being 8mm, and the energy suspension bushings being made for a 3/8" bolt? That leaves 1.75mm of play between the bolt and the bushings.

This a problem or not?

For the Grade 8 bolts, what length is needed? and do they fit in the holes for the rear without modification? Thanks.
