I think you have the right idea leaving the diff bushing as poly, as a solid diff bushing will increase the NVH alot. However, you should be fine with solid bushings on the various suspension arms....

No, I didn't contact KBD, because at that point I had already waited several months for the bumper because of delays from issues with the bumper mold. So I didn't want to go through shipping and...

Yeah the difference between those specific sizes, would probably be unnoticeable.

But if using the 275/35/18 up front, I would think you'd want to use the same diameter in the rear. So at stock...

I would stick with a 40 series sidewall, as a 35 will leave a bit of wheel gap, especially in the rear on an 18 inch wheel. Also, a 245 or 255 width tire will have a 'stretched' look on a 10" wide...
