Front Leaf Spring Shackle Bushings | 1979-1985 Toyota Pickup
The leaf spring helps support the weight of the vehicle, keeps the tire secure on the road, and regulates wheelbase lengths when it changes speeds. The leaf spring shackle bushing is used to connect the leaf springs to the frame of the vehicle. When they wear out, the leaf spring will come loose, causing the axle to potentially be put out of alignment and cause steering wander while also emitting loud banging and clanking noises. The 8.2104 Front Leaf Spring Shackle Bushings are an excellent replacement for rubber bushings that have worn out. When installed, these bushings will help keep the leaf spring connected to the frame longer and provide a better driving experience.
What Happens When the Bushings Hollow Out?
Whether your Toyota is a work truck, daily commuter, or weekend off-roader, over time, the rubber bushings that were installed originally will deteriorate due to dirt, debris, road grime, and general use. The symptoms of a worn out leaf spring bushing include steering wander, uneven tire wear, and general clanking and banging noise. As the rubber bushings wear down, the symptoms might be subtle, but they may become more prominent in the future. If you are experiencing these problems, the best replacements for old rubber bushings are these 8.2104 Front Leaf Spring Shackle Bushings.
What Makes These Bushings so Unique
These bushings are made of polyurethane, a material that will last much longer and resist more than rubber. When installed, the connection between the frame and the leaf spring will be more secure, providing better driving control and stability. The polyurethane is also very resilient against the problems that would cause normal rubber bushings to break down. It has a longer lifespan than rubber and might even last the life of the vehicle. Finally, they also prevent steering wander.
So, if you want to keep the leaf spring secure to the vehicle's frame and prevent steering wander, pick up a set of these Energy Suspension 8.2104 Front Leaf Spring Shackle Bushings.
