    I bought some used greaseable bushings on ebay a while back. Found out they are 1.5". Which dont fit my 87 springs (go figure). BUT, if I was to order a 3" TC EZ-ride kit can you get the 1.5" spring eyes?

    Thanks

    (I will likely pickup a zerorate for the front incase it sits lower for some reason). I am relocating shocks so I wont need those in the kit. I'm hoping to pickup this D44/14bolt (for the ubolt sizes).

    Are you asking about the rear or the front? The rear bushings fit most stock GM springs and almost all aftermarket springs, especially in the shorter lifts.
    It looks like you have a 1.5" front main eye kit which will fit most aftermarket front springs, just not the springs from superlift or skyjacker. Those two require a different kit.
    If you're looking at getting TCI 3" springs all around, you're set up just right.

    Edit/update
    Just bought a BDS lift (front and rear springs) with all the greaseable bushings, disconnects, and zero rates (he even sent me the receipt!)

    I'm hoping to get them on ASAP for the Indy 4wheel parts Jamboree but I use a couple stickers! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
