That was speedy.

Did the alignment bushings come with them or did you order them separately?

Those bushings, do they have any degrees marked on them? Or even a part number? I'm thinking I'm going to pick up a set and install them prior to going for an allignment to save some $$

they have b-z marked around them and comes with an adjustment chart. it looks really complicated to me so im not sure if ill try to put them on myself or just pay the man and save my self the headache. the part number for the ones i have is AA3951. bronco graveyard sales a set separate and that part number is 33520. they look different than mine but heres the link to them:
Adjustable Alignment Bushings Pair

I'd say if you can get them installed before going in for an alignment, you'll save yourself $50 or more. They can still adjust them, but won't charge you to install them.

Do those adjustment bushings that came with you BDS springs have the ears on them or does it just look like a hex head?
