I was wondering any bros here do just the lower front suspension bushings before?
Trans Hua sells each shock absorber for 400+.

yup that was the bushing Micheal said was causing the sound as well. But to change that must drop whole suspension so he said might as well do the shocks also. Can i call trans hua to check if they got stock for the struts? what info they need?

Drop the whole suspension? Cannot change one side at a time? How many hr/day job is the bushing did he tell you it will take.

Change bushing take away some noise + jerkyness. But not the squeaky sound (at least this is my personal experience)
