    I'm putting mine on soon but I need to know what parts to grease, I went cheap and didn't buy the greasible ones. What pieces do I need to grease when I put them in? I can't find my instructions.

    You mean you have to grease them.[​IMG] I would grease every mating surface and get as much grease between the bolt and sleeve as you can too. I was not as cheap as you though[​IMG] I got the greaseable ones and greased everything before the install.

    The bushing rotates on the steel sleeve, so make sure it has plenty of lube, then put some grease or anti-seize on the outside of the bushing and the inside of the spring eye so it's easier to take out later. That's about it. Grease everything!
