    along this, anyone know if the 52" spring eyes are the same size as the 56" ones? I have greasables I got for my 52s that I want to put in my burbs 56s.

    looks to me like you want the 1 1/2" kit. I need to see if they will seperate the shackle bushings. I have the spring bushings but no shackle bushing.

    yeah, I got them all, installed the shackle bushings in my shackles, put the shackles on my ORD flips, then sold the ORD flips /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif. I sold the shackle bushings with the ORD flips a long time ago.

    IIRC the 56" and 52" are have the same eye holes and the 1 3/8" and 1 1/2" is for the shackle itself.

    i think the 1 1/2" are the older ones (pre 81) and the 1 3/8" are the81 and newer. my k10 had a 1 3/8" shackle eye.

    the site says that 81+ 3/4 tons use 1 1/2 so I'd say thats what you need.

    yup, when I ordered my greasable bushings. I had to messure them because they wouldn't take the order with out the messurments.
