    Was just wondering if there is a easy way to measure bushing sizes. I'm going to be lifting my 88 crewcab and there are 3 different sizes that my rear springs could have. And I would hate to have to wait until I have them out before I could order them. Thanks

    You can try to just measure on the truck by checking eye outside diameter and subtracting twice the spring difference, you can also see if you can get into the side of the brackets with a caliper. Typically the best way to go (and be sure it's right) is to wait till you can roast the old bushings out and measure the actual eye. That's not always practical but it eliminates all guessing.
