EX cab bushings

I just ordered a set of the poly cab bushings for my 2000 EX. I checked the "stealer" they only showed 3 of 12 across the country. That I doubt but I want to do them all.
I have a horrible creaking noise under the passenger front floor board. It mostly happens when going in and out of driveways and hitting bumps. I am assuming it is the cab bushings. Texas truck 157k. I have ruled out sway bar bushings, end links and upper shackle bushings.
Anyone used the poly set from Daystar? Any advise? I have seen lots of YouTube vids about trucks but none on Excursions. Maybe I will make one. And cut out all the cussing I will be doing.
Thanks

I only use black Energy polyurethane on all my vehicles, and all those I'm paid to fix.

It's superior to any vulcanized rubber (like factory) and all other brands & colors of poly (including red Energy).

The first thing that grabs me is that we are talking about a 19 year old truck with 157,000 miles on it. If you are going to replace any of the bushings I would strongly consider replacing them all. What do they look like when inspecting them? Are they cracked or coming apart or do they look "okay?" Body mount noise is usually caused by looseness that allows the body to move in top of the bushing. Re-torquing them is rarely effective because they have hardened and compressed. Replacing them requires loosening all of the mounts on one side and lifting the body off the frame so if you are going to put in the effort to access the bolts (in an Excursion from the rear seats back is a PIA) you may as well do them all. Just my opinion... I have been there and done that. Also, if you are not sure where the noise is coming from the use of Chassis Ears is extremely helpful in detecting and locating the source.

A basic set that works just fine and won't drain your wallet: https://www.tooltopia.com/steelman-6...xoCeWsQAvD_BwE

If you are truly interested in this tool so a search and you can probably shave a few bucks off the price.

Energy suspension does not offer cab bushings for the Excursion. I already talked directly to them.
Agreed I plan to do them all. I had a buddy riding in the passenger front seat yesterday. He said the grinding noise was coming from just under the floor on the passenger side. I will probably be waiting till winter to do the job. WAY too hot here in S Texas for a job like that now days.
