I won't be reusing the factory ones as one has started to seize after the car sat. I opened to caps on top of the mounts to find water almost all the way to the top. Hard plastic caps expected to seal, I do not know what they were thinking.
Cradle bushings are only necessary if yours are worn out.
That was a bigger problem with the LHS and Concorde than with the 300M/Intrepid.
I would do the strut mounts though unless you are going to re-use your stock ones.
I was considering getting Quick-Struts and replacing the mounts with brand new Mopar ones on the front, but after hearing about success once tightening the nut on the aftermarket mounts, it seems easy enough and worth a try.

I used to always take comfort in the fact that both diagonals couldn't possibly break at the same time and cause it to lose the brakes completely - that is no longer the case. When just one of the rear lines went and the fluid drained, the pads on all 4 rotors eventually had ZERO stopping power. Absolutely nothing at all. I still can't understand why as the other front and rear should not have been affected. Would that be worn pistons inside the master cylinder causing fluid from the chamber that had not experienced the line failure to leak into the one with the broken line each time the brakes were being applied? Thus slowly emptying the fluid from both diagonals?LH Platform wrote: ↑August 28th, 2018, 7:18 am Replace them ASAP if you haven't done so yet, I had a line rupture and was expecting to still have somewhat 50%. It was NOWHERE near that. The other lines ended up breaking as soon as I touched them. I am not exaggerating.What he said. I had one break on our white car pulling out of a parking lot and I had to use the e brake the car became undrivable as soon as the rear line went.
Is the rear sway bar the same diameter as the one in the front? Also on the rear, there are two lateral links per side. Are they both adjustable and the same part #?
