    57\" bushings, where to buy?

    Where can I find new bushings for the 57" Ford springs? I think I found a set of springs I might buy, but the bushings are shot. I can't seem to locate anyone who sells just them. I guess I am just not hitting the right stores.... any help would be appreciated! Thanks! /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    You have tried 4 Wheel Parts? I know Energy Suspension makes them, I will see if I can find a part #.

    I didn't even consider Energy Suspension. I totally forgot about them. I called 4WPW and they told me I had to buy some set. That'd be nice if I had a Ford to swap the rest in on... /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    Steph...I'm gonna go against the grain here and suggest picking up a set of stock rubber bushings from Ford or wherever. The rubber is a much better bushing material than poly and will outlast it by 10 years or more.

    Check out a spring shop or suspension shop or even Ford itself. Frizzelfry works at a Ford dealer maybe he can hook you up?

    Well I saw better pics and I won't be buying them anyhow. They are rusted up a lot. Looks like they were stored in a salt water tank or something. Guy claims they are surface rust but I'm not buying at all... /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    I think I got dibs thus far on ones 55willy is selling so I think I will just eat shipping on those because he won't sell me crap... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
