What springs are they? I have a new set of BDS bushings for sale. I put them on to drive the Jeep home, then took them off right away. Most people like poly bushings, I prefer rubber and swapped mine.

Send me a PM if you're interested.

No, they aren't the same. I went through 6 different sets of bushings before I found the correct ones to fit. Each manufacturer has their own size of eyelet in the end of the springs it seems.

After the 5th set of wrong bushings I used an internal micrometer and measured the eyelet of the spring, then ordered that size from Morris.
