Leaf Spring Bushing Question
« on: September 04, 2017, 02:06:11 PM »
I need to replace a rear spring bushing (rear - rearward)
Bought a Moog from Advanced, (of course, for a stock XJ spring)
I have Rusty's springs (so of course, it doesn't fit.)
I tried calling them for a cross number but Rusty's is closed today (Holiday)
The one I NEED is 1-1/2" OD x 2-1/2" long.
Does anyone know what vehicle I ask for for this diameter/ length??

What has a 1.5 X 2.5 bushing?

I don't think so, YJ bushings aren't quite the right OD, I still don't know what they are...I just got those Stengel Bros bushings and they fit the RE leafs perfectly. Nice looking rubber bushings at a good enough price.
