    I have a set of rough country leaves for the front. The energy bushings I had, had almost an inch gap between the hangers and the bushings of the front eye. I ordered a set from ORD and thay are closer but not the same size as the hangers. Has anyone had this? I put some washers there but it doesnt seem right. Any suggestions would be helpful /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif

    Are you sure they are RC springs? I know Superlift and Skyjacker both use bushings with a shoulder approx. 1/2" thick per side.

    I have the Superlift bushings from ORD and they also are "loose" in the front hangers. I havent shimmed mine up (yet) but may have to cuz im afraid the bushing is going to tear on the outer edges. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif
