Energy Suspension HyperFlex Leaf Spring and Shackle BushingsVehicles 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 is 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 RubberO.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 5A 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.

Energy Suspension 3.2130
starstarstarstarstar" Major improvement in handling! "
Ever since the first time I bought and installed a polyurethane suspension kit from Energy Suspension I have been impressed with the great improvement in handling and control. Whether a Corvette or old Suburban the difference one of these kits makes is undeniable. The ride is a little bit firm but the increased performance is huge. Thanks Energy Suspension!

starstarstarstarstar" Great quality material and built to spec! "
Great product, and super easy to install. The worst part of the job was getting the old bushings out! The next millionaire will be the person who invents a system to remove old bushings with the leaf springs still attached to the axle. All and all a great buy and I'll definitely buy Energy suspension parts again!verified_user Verified Buyer - Josh Erickson - . Energy Suspension 3.2130 - 5 out of 5
