Just be aware that the fix is only for these they listed:

If the shaft is not straight like the one they picture it will not work. Heavy duty quadralift suspension doesn't have an official fix. SLS is different from quadralift--forgive me if I seem to be talking down--not my intent just want to save you some headaches.The bushings didn't fit the new Chrysler shocks or the new Monroe's I bought as backups. You might want to look at one of your shocks to see.
Just a theory here.
The bushing kits in the latest TSB 17-002-14 are for (SLS) self leveling shocks.
They don't fit on your Monroe shocks, because Monroe doesn't make SLS for the JGC as of yet, just regular type shocks.
In an earlier post of yours, you were referring to a plate above the shock mount.
I have my original noisy SLS, and as seen in the burry pic attached.
The new SLS replacements did not have that plate either.
(which 6 months later is clunking again)
I went online to factorychyslerparts.com looking for that plate above the shock mount.
They list it twice for my JCG, but only for vehicles without SES - road leveling suspension
So my theory is and remember its only a theory.
Is that both your Monroe and the Chrysler shocks are just regular shocks.
Thus maybe the reason for the difference in shafts you mention, the upper shock mount plate and why the bushings didn't fit on either.
Now I'm not trying to mean, but only trying to save some confusion here.
I'm very happy if your fix works for you and everybody with that type of shock mount that tries your fix.
My JGC has both sale codes SDA and SES, and has the noisy and rough riding self leveling shocks which I thought were only installed as part of the towing package.
So I'm hoping this latest TSB will at least fix the clunking noise on my unit once and for all!
Now I ordered mine a few days after the TSB was released and like Mcdenny.
The bushings are backordered like crazy, and my dealer parts guys has no idea when the parts will be in.
Will update as parts come available.
Sorry and thanks
