    I run a full set of ORD greasables and I need to change springs in the rear. Question, can I reuse the bushings ? I would check them of course and replace if damaged. I only have about 1500 miles on the bushings.

    Thanks

    I figured but wanted to be sure. Knowing my luck I would find springs that had different spring eye sizes than the ones I already have:D . Also for 2.5" wide springs in the front can I just use the same bushings as for the rear just put a 1/4" spacer on each side to make up the difference?
