Any input as far as the best bushing for use with bags?

Since you are traveling through such a range of motion I was wondering if poly is still the best choice? Just curious as to what others have done.

No one knows? Man I guess I just need to get it done and figure it out after.

Same as for a "regular" suspension : Global West Del-a-lum. Hell, probably more-so due to the range of motion of a bagged setup.

I have GW lower rears, on my wagon now, but I also have a set of U/L BMR arms.

Should I stick with the GW arms in the back, replace the pumpkin bushings with new rubber, and to del-a-lum up front?

That is what I could do in that situation, if the bushings in the pumpkin are worn out (mine were in surprisingly good shape when I pulled them out last year). Might consider getting a NEW pair of stock uppers while you are in there, they do wear out and a pair of new uppers is only about $65 from Dal.

Replace the BUSHINGS or ARMS?

Replace the arms (which are $65/pair), and inspect the bushings in the axle. The bushings in the axle are a bear to remove if you don't have the right tool (I see that someone "bumped" my thread about the right tool today.....costs $80 but literally saves HOURS of work).
