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" Really nice! Had an issue but it was resolved and all is well... "
This was my first installation of bushings into some leaf springs. These were, of course, very highly rated, so I went with them. Removing the original bushings that had been exposed to the elements for 25 years was, as you might imagine, a bit of a task. Two of the six bushings fit perfectly but I needed something different for the rear bushing and the shackle. Contacted tech support in a chat and was given a number for Energy support. Spoke to Mike and they had to manufacture two of the four that I needed for my application. The parts were sent and installed. I completed the installation and could not be happier! I suspect that my old Ford never rode as well as it does now. The whole front end was replaced as well as the rear bushings and shocks. I also take some comfort in knowing that should these bushings ever need replacing, which I doubt they ever will, the replacement procedure will be a bit less painful. \n\nHighly recommended product and company!!verified_user Verified Buyer - David Flosi - .

starstarstarstarstar" Very easy to install; truck rides better than new! "
These bushings are the cats meow! The most difficult part of this job was removing the old bushings w/ steel housings! These polyurethane bushings slid right in to the springs and shackles. My truck rides better than new - just a little stiffer than I can recall - but a good stiffer.verified_user Verified Buyer - Lawrence H Liden - . Energy Suspension 4.2122 - 5 out of 5
