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.

starstarstarstarstar" Very well made, perfect "
Very nicely made, time will tell how well they function over time, however I think they should last at least as long as I might. Bit more difficult to install than stock simply because they do not compress as easily as stock, so longer starting bolts were the ticket. Car not finished yet, so I cannot attest to how they might affect the ride.verified_user Verified Buyer - Dave Lenz - . Energy Suspension 15.2109 - 5 out of 5
starstarstarstarstar" Amazing! "
**Will Fit a 1977 Porsche 924!**\n\nThese bushings are listed for a 71 Super Beetle. But after doing a little homework they crossed referenced over to a 1977 Porsche 924 of which I currently own. I purchased these, installed them and they fit flawlessly as a lot of VW and Audi parts are used on the 924s. The only difference between the Beetle and Porsche setup is that the bushings are reversed. The notched bushings go on the outside on the beetle, but on the 924 the notched bushings go on the inside. The inner hole is the same size and I did not have to force anything, they are legit :). There is no listing I have found for rubber bushings anywhere as Porsche no longer supports the car, so I was very happy when I found these.verified_user Verified Buyer - Tom - .
