    I was given a set of poly rear spring bushings (energy suspension) part number3.2106G for my 89v3500....
    I have the same exact springs on my 85 k30.... the heavy overload type

    the energy kit says they fit all k30s with 1 1/2 inch main eye and shackle eye...

    My eye looks like 1 3/4 inch rear, 1 1/2 inch front(both measured without the sleeve)
    the shackle is much smaller

    anyone have these springs and can point me to the right kit to fit them?
    the bushings look really nice and are fluted for grease but "they no fit" says pancho

    help? anyone?

    thanks

    Check the ORD forum ... IIRC, there is a goofy metric size, ~1.7", on later trucks, and R/V stuff might just be goofy.

    There is ALSO a 1.75", I think ... anyway, there was a recent thread about this, and if you can't find it, PM me or call Stephen :D

    I will probly have the same problemw ith my truck. What SHOULD an 85 3/4ton have for a rear frame shackle bushing? I do believe 1 1/2 but just to be safe I might get a set of 1 3/4 just in case
