the "4" in the front row are the 2 halves of one.

No kit comes with the rad support bushings

I purchased a full set of Energy Suspension body bushings for my Malibu. I am running an Iceman radiator support so I will not be using the radiator support bushings. PM me if interested and maybe we can work something out. They are brand new never installed. Located in Twin Cities MN.

The radiator support pieces rattle the headlights to death and kill the bulbs.

I'm thinking of using the Iceman support myself, What are you using for the mounts?

Iceman support bolts directly to where the front bumper shock bolts to the frame. There is no cushioned mount in this setup, it is bolted solid. Regardless, it is a very nice setup. I am happy with it.

As far as I remember for any car doing a body bushing change, leave the core support bushings rubber. This was recommended going back years ago when people were changing the camaro body bushing kits outs Comp Engineering solids.

Id like to add to my previous comment. This came directly from the mouth of TNT. They said they had a few guys with street cars with their solid mounts having headlight issues due to vibration and shock from driving. I worked with TNT to develop a solid set for s10 trucks which they decided to not market for what ever reason.

I have the S-10 mounts available. They've been listed on my site for over 6 months. Tell your friends! LoL
