Those with front Addco, what bushings and bracket are you using?

I just installed the front Addco and per recommendations, I used the bushing that came with the Addco and the stock bracket as it is beefier. Since installing, the bushing keeps working its way out of the bracket.

I am thinking of putting in the stock bushing even though it is smaller. I know it will stay in place at least.

Is anyone using the bracket that came with the Addco? Has it broken yet?

What are people using?

Thanks,
Derek

Don't use the supplied Addco bracket, it'll tear. I used to have a front Addco bar but wasn't happy w/the fit. It has been a while but think I just used my OEM bracket. The bushing was squished a little but it held up

I went out and was going to put the bushing back in the bracket. Somehow the upper bolt on the passenger side is now cross threaded. I just removed the bar entirely and am going to see if a shop and tap that bolt for me. I am not sure where to find a tap that large around town. Uggh
