    I have a set of ford springs that have been sitting around for a while, I am going to go ahead and use them so I dont have to buy some 56's. However what size bushing is the eye spring? I think it is metric so this is part of my problem. Do they have greasables available? Do I cut that inner sleeve out? What size bolt will I end up with, same as stock? I know a few peeps still have them around here and I need to know. This truck has to move, its been too long now. But I have done a hell of alot to it in the last year. Thanks guys.

    Give ORD a call they should be able to hook you up with a set of greasables. And yes you have to remove the metal sleeve if you are going to Uerathane.

    I did call ORD and they didnt seem to think that they have my size I need. I tried to measure the bushing size, I dont remember what I came up with but when I was talking to her she didnt seem to think that they had anything. She even asked Stephen he didnt know either. My problem is I think its metric, if someone has a part number for some poly bushings that would be great. I can make my own greaseables if need be. What if I run a rubber bushing (which I really dont want to do) does the sleeve stay in? Why do they do that with differently with poly versus rubber?

    And by the way these are the 2.5" wide leafs off of a 2wd f-150 I believe '92.
