I installed two of these after one of my originals rusted through (the other wasn't far befind). The included bushing is nice, but if your existing one is in good shape, leave it, it's not worth the hassle if your vehicle has limited space to get tools up in to do the swap like my E-150 did.

                First the starboard side hanger and shackle went; almost completely rusted away. I spent several hours on my back in the summer heat grinding off and driving out the rivets. Installation took almost no time. Eighteen months later the port side let go, I was able to use a friends garage, rack and air tools; done and back on the road in an hour. Parts fit just fine.

                        A:

                        O.E. = "Original Equipment", and due to overuse of the abbreviation, can mean several different things these days. Traditionally, it referred to an original Ford, GM, Chrysler, etc. part OR the part without the big name, but was made by the same exact supplier. Nowadays, it's use is a bit more general, but does imply that it will be an exact replacement, and is made to the same quality standards - this however is debatable.
