Prothane Leaf Spring and Shackle Bushings

Vehicles with a leaf spring and shackle set up lean heavily on the springs to take the shock out of a bump. Not only does a leaf spring reduce the force of a bump that you feel, but it also evenly distributes the load across the chassis instead of the whole load pressing down on one point. Your ability to get to point A to point B without scraping the pavement is heavily dependent on the leaf spring and shackle bushings which mount the spring to the frame.

Prothane's polyurethane is a stronger material for the mounting points of a leaf spring and shackle. Polyurethane leaf spring bushings are able to handle the stress from the suspension, and is not vulnerable to road grime. With Prothane's polyurethane, you can protect your vehicle's ability to carry a load, and your bumpy free ride, for years to come.

Prothane Leaf Spring Bushings

Replacing the Faulty Rubber

O.E. leaf spring and shackles utilize a soft rubber bushing to mount the spring to the frame. The rubber is great for reducing the noise and vibrations from being transferred into the cab. Unfortunately, rubber bushings have a short lifespan. Once the rubber fails, due to wear and tear or road grime, a leaf spring's effectiveness is severely reduced. Meaning you will experience a very bumpy ride, the vehicle's ability to carry a load or tow is hindered greatly and you'll experience a loss of control.


Use Prothane's Super Grease

Leaf spring and shackle bushings handle a lot of stress from the vehicle load, so be sure to use the supplied Prothane's Super Grease to lubricate the bushings during installation. Its super important that you lubricate each bushing well to prevent any squeaking. If you'd like some extra grease just in case, pick up an extra 3 pack.

Definitely made the rear of an already lite car ( 65 Mustang Fastback ) ride much stiffer with less side to side travel

Very nice heavy duty shackles. If your running a lot of power on leaf springs these are a good upgrade.

5 out of 5 - Excellent

These do not fit AMC Gremlin and I didnt get to use them. Due to the thickness of the spring plate and bolt head, and the design of the upper spring shackle mounts, these do not fit. not real happy, they were not cheap. Looks to me like there wasnt a trial fit on anything before being sold as a direct replacement. These will not fit your AMC! Hope this review makes the page that way others can avoid the costly purchase of parts that wont fit out of the box.Editors Note: since these are HD shackles the the thickness of the shackle strap and moving the bolt head out causing interference. You may have to reverse the bolt position to get the bolt to go in. Prothane test fits all of their parts to the same generation of vehicles. If you are having a fitment issue be sure to contact us.

I installed these shackles with new leaf springs on my 68 Dart GT, they function and ride great. They appear to not have any deformation and I have put a almost 2 thousand miles on them. Some harder than others. Great product.

I was very happy with the quality of the kit, some makers are marketing flimsy brackets. But these are thick strong and well made. The bushes are different sizes, so it was very helpful that the bushes were numbered and the fitting position noted in the instructions.\nAs I`m in the UK, they did take a long time to arrive, which was the only downside.\nShipping expensive!
5 out of 5 - High quality kit
