    Suspension
    Hi folks, Been doing some research on upgrading/replacing components on my wife's '04 Envoy SLE (non-XL, I6, no air suspension).

    Suspension
    My truck has 76k on it, it seems to be swaying and bouncing too much now. I inspected things and the front sway bushings look beat, and the rear end is very bouncy. What have you had to replace on yours, and are the front sway bar bushings available at Autozone or do I have to go OEM?
