1995 Rodeo Leaf Spring Bushing Replacement

Postby positive » Tue Jan 10, 2017 4:57 pm

The rear most leaf spring bushings (where the spring and shackle meet) are fried on my 1995 Rodeo. I believe these bushings are pressed in. Can anybody confirm this. I read where they are NOT pressed in and I read where they ARE pressed in. They need to be replaced and I do most of my own work. Any insight is appreciated. THX.

Haven't works on a 1st gen Rodoe, but the bushings on 1st gen Troopers are rubber just pushed in by hand. The problem is getting the old bushings out. I found using some heat helps free them.

Jerry Lemond (pm JLemond) has the OEM bushings.
Matt at Independent4x.com has polly replacements. Matt also has replacement bolts that have lube fittings.
