So the one you have is a non-adjustable, I've never used one so I don't know if a fixed diameter is better. Thank you for looking.

Yes it's non-adjustable. It's designed to do the job on trucks exactly like mine. Best it reames both bushings on the same axis so there's no binding due to the bushings not having the exact same centerline. As I understand things, you can get the same results with a different style reamer, just requires additional steps. Such as wrapping the shank of the reamer with shim stock so it stays centered in the bushing not being reamed.

Yeehaaaawwww!!! Job finished. Truck drives MUCH better. Steering is light and precise. Also, the front-end seems to be quieter while driving on our potholed roads.

I highly recommend this little project. Not that hard. Not that expensive. Returns are amazing.
