    I am planning on buying ORD bushings. Any particular reason they do not offer front greasable ones? Any reason I could not just do them myself (I have a lathe and the appropiate bits for cutting G8 steel)

    they do offer front greasable. I just put them on my K5 when I did the lift. when you order the front shackles they have an option for $20.00 more you can get the greasable bolts with them.

    Solo is right. Each end of all of my leaf springs has a greasable bushing on it and I bought them all from ORD.
