Energy Suspension HyperFlex 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. Energy Suspension's Hyperflex 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 are not vulnerable to road grime. With Energy Suspension's polyurethane, you can protect your vehicle's ability to carry a load, and your bumpy free ride, for years to come.
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.
Be sure to use Formula 5
A leaf spring bushing rotates a lot against the metal shell, so make sure you grease it well with Energy Suspension's own Formula 5 Bushing Lubricant. Using plenty of grease is the best way to ensure a long lasting part without any squeaking. If you'd like some extra grease just in case, pick up an extra 3 pack or an 8 ounce tube.

These bushings were purchased to replace the deteriorated bushings on the traction bars on my Dodge truck. The manufacturer of the traction bars is unknown. These bushings matched the eye diameter and internal bolt hole diameter but were too long. I measured the length needed and cut the bushings with a chop saw equipped with a carbide blade. This worked flawlessly. The new bushings have improved dramatically the sloppy handling of the truck, which is lifted 6 inches. Overall, modifying the bushings and the improved handling has been great.verified_user Verified Buyer - Richard Booth - . Energy Suspension 3.2125 - 5 out of 5

I build classic cars including resto-mods. Working with the LSU Mechanical Engineering Capstone Project is how I got introduced to ASP, the students found you. Now we know where we can get parts that enable us to modify and improve suspension performance which is one of our specialties. Thanksverified_user Verified Buyer - Kearney LeJeune - .
