Poly Rear leaf spring bushings and shackle question, 04 1500 4 wd

Hi, I just ordered a set of Black Energy suspension rear Leaf spring bushings, They are marked for a 2 WD but everything I have researched show that the 2 and 4 WD use same factory bushing.

I also ordered new shackles since the bushing in them are getting to look a bit rough, Any tips are changing this stuff? Is it worth it to go Poly or should I have used Rubber?

Am I right that 2wd and 4 wd use same bushing?

Will I notice a difference?

I also ordered new Bolts and Nuts.

you won't notice the poly difference as much in the rear as you do the front. yes, it is a very worthwhile upgrade. even just for the sake of bushing life, but it does make the suspension feel more "precise" when you do the whole truck. Both of my trucks are poly throughout
