Since we may never see RE again. Its time I found a solution to the rear leaf bushings, especially the rear bushing (cute lil 1.5 incher that tears when you look at it).

So far my search for a front bushing is turning up little. I did find a poly bushing for the rear eye. The bigger bushings in energy suspension kit# 8-2103g are a perfect fit.1.5" od

As for the front bushing:
dimensions are 2" od x3 inches to 3-1/8 inch. sleeve id is 5/8 (leaf bolt)

I found a poly bushing and sleeve through performance suspension components

its 1.94 "od, 3.1" in length and 5/8" sleeve id. Think 0.06" clearance difference is bad?

They have been down for 2 months already, their "restructuring" but I don't think their coming back, luckly for me I got all my bolts and bushings before they disseapeared lol, had bryson at JTC change my bushings in my long arms to regular leaf spring bushings, WAAAYYY BETTER and cheaper than RE,
