    I need bushings to fit inside of 1.75" tube with a .120 wall(so 1.5" outside diamater), need to be 3" wide outside to outside(2.5" wide spring + shoulders of bushings), and I need a 9/16" bolt. Anyone know a place that can fill this bill? I called ORD and they are looking into it now but as of this moment nothing.

    thanks but no.

    Remembered I have low rider shackles out in the garage. I will just run those instead of a bushing with a 2 plate shackle setup. 1/2" bolt but hey I have them, free is free.

    The Belltech drop shackles??????????????????????

    I'm thinking real quick.....................

    I haven't got the bushings for them yet and was having some trouble finding some, and I had a set of 4" front springs and had the bushings out, I think they came out of the rear spring eye and those fit but I was wanting to get a new set cause these were kind of used up like a Bangkok whore............

    If ya want more info, we'll look around and find some. It'll be tomorrow before I can get back to any truck stuff because of work.................

    yeah belltech drop shackles. Not the ideal setup but it will work fine I think. I strengthened them when I planned to use them in the rear and will do so even more now.

    I have some, they are red, and they are currently being used in my samurai. Maybe try looking through energy suspension, or through the post in the bloody knuckle about part #'s, there is a post in tehre with what size bushing you need and what it came out of.

    Sounds like a YJ bushing, i believe for the rear eye of a front spring.

    Nope, i checked its the rear bushings for a Chevy truck, they are 1.5" OD that are 3" total width, with 2.5" between the shoulders and use a 9/16" Bolt.
