    The DU bushings are a standard size (I believe) and most LBS carry them. Or you could do the baller bearing set mentioned above (I might soon).
    I made a bushing press out of a couple chrome sockets and a big c-clamp, not at all hard to change them.


    Edit: I had a very similar issue. Turned out one of the lower shock mount spacers was undersized. Read about it here, skip to the last couple pages for pics and resolution.

    I have the same think with both RP23 and Giant Shock. In my case tightening those red bolts helped. Anyway coul'd you please paste link to the spacers which you've bought for your Trance since i can't open it from your post on mtbnj.com?

    Ah. ended up ordering a lower bolt kit from a local Giant dealer. Comes with the upper and lower shock bolts, the spacers and a couple of the bearings. About 40 bucks. I think....maybe it was uk based chain reaction cycles had some of the kits online but I wanted to be sure I got the right set so bought local. The dealer actually got the wrong year kit 09 I think but everything was the same except for the lower bolt.
