    School me on leaf spring bushings. I have a '72 Blazer with a 4" lift springs up front. I have no idea what brand springs they are. I need to replace the bushings at the shackle end. They look like they are 1-1/4" in diameter. Do I need to watch out for what size to get? I thought I read once on this board that the bushing sizes are different depending on what brand springs you have. Is there any way to tell what kind of springs they are?

    I called up offroad design and they said that all spring have the same diameter bushings at the shackle end. It is the front bushing that varies in size. Thanks for the help.

    lol...i wasn't even thinking about that...52" rear springs are also the same...63s are a bit different & i think that's what confused me...some 63s even have different size spring eyes on opposite ends...
