    i have tuff country ez-ride 2" lift springs for the front and 2" blocks for the rear. my question is what kind of polyurathane bushings for a leaf spring setup has everyone had the best luck with and where did you get them. next is does one size fit all aftermarket springs.

    Check your bolt size most 87 newer have 9/16 bolts not 1/2 or 7/16 like the early models so the 1/2 greasables wont work unless you change shackles and then it still wont work in the front hanger

    holy smokes... I retract the previous statement.

    Thanks for the clarification and yet it has been a VERY long week.
