Thumbs up Leaf Spring Install

Just got my new pro-comp rear leaf springs,They came with poly bushings not rubber.My question is do I grease them like I would a rubber bushing.4-Wheel shop said no grease.Also there are 4 sleeves in kit 2 are brass colored and 2 are silver.Which is front and which is rear or does it matter

I don't remember when I installed my PC lift if it had different sleeves. But I don't think it would matter. And yes no grease on the bushings, but the little you should use to install them. The bolts is what needs to be greased IMO. This way the bolts won't rust to the sleeves limiting the travel of the suspension. Right now my two left rear bolts for the shackle are there's frozen. It makes my Jeep lean and looks like I have a fat chick in the back seat. But with new bolts and sleeves it will be problem solved.

I greased the crap out of mine. The first time I didn't and eventually it squeaked like crazy.

There are two sizes of sleeves. The larger go in front and the smaller go in back. The frame mount bolt is larger than the shackle mount bolt.

I would grease them with some lithium grease, its not absolutely necessary, but its beneficial.
