    Hi all,
    I just had my Fischer mounted to a recently purchased 2005 2500 HD. The guys in Maine who mounted the push plates and swapped the harness told me that my torsion bar cross member support bushings are worn, and that I should replace them before doing much plowing, or I'd beat the snot out of the mounts. I had to be back in SC before I could get them to do this work. How tough is it? Where do the parts come from? Can I buy the bushings themselves? Or, do I have to buy the bushing/mount and grind the rivets off the old ones?

    The local Chevy/GMC dealer is good, and mostly honest, but very expensive and will not clue me in to outside options. I've been there and done that for the instrument cluster ($520 @ dealer vs $89 from, and intermediate steering shaft, ($320 at dealer for the same part installed again vs $169 for Napa aftermarket part with internal nylon sleeve). Any guidance on this will be greatly appreciated.

    So, nobody's ever had to replace these bushings in a 2500 HD? Mine's a fluke?
