Re: Leaf spring bushing question
The only reason I changed mine out was when I replaced my shocks I noticed that the shackle mounts had rusted and snapped. My leaf springs where resting on the bed of the truck. I ended up installing new mounts, shackles, and all the bushings. The bushings might of been ok but I figured since I'm already doing that much work I might as well replace them to. I took a metal pipe the size of the outside of the bushing and a small sledge hammer and beat the old ones out.
