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" High quality and easy to install "
I bought these for 1981 FJ40 Land Cruiser to replace some old dried up bushings. These came nicely packaged with instructions, lube, and bushings. The bushings were easy to install and seemed to be nicely made.verified_user Verified Buyer - David Gonzalez - . Energy Suspension 8.2106 - 5 out of 5
starstarstarstarstar_border" very good "
I installed these bushings on a 1987 Landcruiser and the fit was perfect, which is the most important to me. I really appreciated the fact that they were all tight fit. Vehicle handling got improved over the worn out rubber bushings. I can't say about longevity since its too early to tell, but after 1200 miles, they are still good.verified_user Verified Buyer - Gilles-Etienne Côté - . Energy Suspension 8.2106 - 4 out of 5
