I really do appreciate all the help & patience, guys! It's just taking me awhile to wrap my head around all of these....theory is the same but I need to catch up with the new technology. I never actually intended to buy a modern muscle car....it started out with my '04 Silverado 1500 & wanting to add some performance to its 4.3L Vortec V-6. Originally, I was going to add a Wynjammer Supercharger w/larger injectors, Corvette 4L60e tranny, & other goodies (around 320rwhp) but being that I live in California, that was a "no-go" C.A.R.B. wise & the performance upgrade ended up being a '11 2SS/RS~lol.

Am I correct in saying that the radius arms are basically the same (SS, ZL1, 1LE, Z-28) bushing wise but the Z-28 has the nylon insert & if so, I'm better off keeping my OEM radius arms & installing a set of aluminum JPSS inserts.

Also, (Justice Pete) thank you for explaining about the engine heat & its effect on the poly bushings....upgrading the motor mounts are another mod that I was going to look into & considering polyurethane. Need to research....is anyone using CTS V mounts?

I wasn't planning to install any components w/spherical rods but couldn't pass up the deal on the trailing arms & toe links (thankfully I have a pretty loud stereo system to help drown out the road noise....nothing like a little "Radar Love"~lol.

Indeed (V6 arm/bushing is also the same).

The arms are the same across the Radius / Brake tension arms 5th Gen platform, BUT the inserts are different with the Z/28 getting the nylon version of the snubber.

We are ready to install several sets in house to verify fit across multiple cars. Send me a PM or email info@JPSSonline.com

You will LOVE the installed price complete with a JPSS dead nuts balls on alignment.
