    Getting ready to lift my 88 crewcab and they list 3 different sizes of bushings that where used on my rear leaf springs. I was just wondering if there is an easy way to measure them while they are still on the truck. That way I'm not waiting around for bushings to show up while my truck is torn apart.

    I don't think so. If the bushings are in the spring all the way like they should be that would be hard to measure.

    which bushing size are you looking for? Are you replacing the stock leaf spring bushings or are you replacing the rear leafs as well? every time i bought a new set of leaf springs they came with bushings and they only needed to know the size of the bolt, which i was told there are 2 different sizes for the front only.
    anyway, new leafs should come with bushings.
    Good luck.

    I'm replaceing the stock bushings in the rear springs. I'm going to use a 4 inch block in the back so I can retain my one ton leaf packs.
