they don't hurt, but if you buy urethane, use the lube that comes with them, and then anti sieze the bolt all the way, even where it goes into the sleeve you should be fine. don't anti sieze the bushing, just use the grease designed for them.

plac i only ordered 8 bushing to start with, and then i realized i probably need like 24. (6 per corner?) I will install the 8 and see how it goes. Maybe the 8 will go into my 4 frame side brackets. Then the next 16 pieces I order will be the easier to reach shackle side of things.

Jeep Guy ya all you have to do is cut the bolts, i had to do that for all 8 bolts when i put a rc lift kit on. your local hardware store should have grade 8 bolts to replace them.

plac i mentioned that because on a Rough Country leaf spring kit i was looking at, it looked like the bushings were press-in style..

jpdocdave ya, you can do them without a press, they're a tight fit, but no big deal. but the hanger side bolts do seize like they said in this old thread. i've had to cut most of the bolts off on the ones i've done.

plac On replacing leaf spring bushings on my 1993..

Are the primary leaf spring bushings front and back press-in? Or simple rubber that you just pull out? What about the frame side of that shackle, I would assume at least those are normal rubber you can do without a press?

daddyjeep I had to get the sawzall after mine. Just cut on both sides and the spring will drop right out. They should be grade 8 bolts so have a few blades handy.

whiteyj BFH time. Just 14 years of moisture & rust holding it back. Found the same thing when I lifted my 94 two years ago.

i changed the front bushings on my leaf spring shackles. when i removed the nuts on the rear mount for the front springs the bolt would not come out. i could not even get it to turn. are these pressed in? anyone have a clue?
