As part of your suspension system, your leaf spring bushings can take a beating. If it's time to replace yours, check out the many options on 4 Wheel Parts.
Signs of Bad Bushings
The key to detecting bad bushings for leaf springs is to know what you're looking for. One sign is a sagging back axle that causes your truck or SUV to tilt up. However, even a perfectly level truck may mean that your leaf spring needs help. That's because many trucks come with a slight tilt forward. If suddenly that slope is neutral or a little backward, that's the most apparent symptoms of worn-out pads and bushings on your leaf spring. If you notice this problem, take a look at the part in question. If you see visible signs of wear, thinning, or rust, it's probably time to replace with a new leaf spring bushing kit.

What Causes Bushings to Fail?
Normal wear and tear leads to a bushing fail. Many original parts directly from the factory are hydro bushings, which means the rubber product is filled with liquid. The liquid filling helps reduce road noise and maintain a vibration-free ride. Over time, the outer rubber coating starts to break down. When this happens, the liquid can leak out and change the overall feel of your suspension system.
What Are Your Replacement Options?
Whether your bushings and pads wore out or you simply want to upgrade your suspension system, you have a few options when it comes to bushing kits. First, you can find a spring bushing kit in a variety of materials. Common options include hydro-filled, polyurethane and heavy-duty bushings and pads. Heavy-duty products are often best for off-roading vehicles because they offer high-quality protection at a relatively low cost. Next, you can find bushings for different areas of the suspension system, including a forward or rear bushing or a main shackle eye bushing. Finally, you can choose to get products from different manufacturers, such as ARB 4x4 Accessories, Omix-Ada or Pro Comp Suspension. In other words, you can choose to buy an ARB Spring Bushing Kit, a Pro Comp Leaf Spring Bushing or anything that fits your needs.
