I'm back after several years of just checking in every 6 months on the zone. My ride is posted in the members section under Roger M715 on Rockwells w/ 500 Cadillac engine. <br/><br/>Any ways I've started working on the truck again. Finally got back into a place where I could work on it and spend a little extra money.<br/><br/>Question: What is the inside diamter of the rear leaf springs (front & rear mounting locations of the rear spring)? Or I'll ask the same question in a different way...what is the O.D. of the spring bushing?<br/><br/>I'm adding rear steering and need to mount the springs under the chasis and change out the spring bushings so I can use a 9/16&quot; bolt.<br/><br/>Thanks,<br/><br/>Roger<hr size="1"/><b>Re: Back...spring bushing O.D.</b><br/>Post by brute4c on Nov 6, 2006, 10:35am<br/><br/>Hi Roger!!!! Great to hear from you!!<br/><br/>If no one else gets this info posted, I have a set of NOS springs at home and will measure then...<hr size="1"/><b>Re: Back...spring bushing O.D.</b><br/>Post by m715jeep25 on Nov 6, 2006, 12:57pm<br/><br/>That would be great! I wanted to get the parts on order so I can tear things down and start on it this weekend. While you're looking at the springs could you check if the front and rear bushings of the &quot;rear&quot; leaf springs are the the same O.D. and if you have a NOS front spring pack I'll take those bushing O.D.'s as well....I might as well change them all while I'm at it.<br/><br/>Brute4c I think we met at one of the FE in Manhatton in 98-00. Time flies...and it all runs together.<br/><br/>thanks,<br/>Roger<hr size="1"/><b>Re: Back...spring bushing O.D.</b><br/>Post by brute4c on Nov 6, 2006, 1:08pm<br/><br/>We sure did Roger...it hs been a while...my 9 year old daughter turned 4 while we were there....the National we had at Tutte Creek in 2001...great wheelin!<br/><br/>I'll get those measures for ya...no sweat!!<hr size="1"/><b>Re: Back...spring bushing O.D.</b><br/>Post by brute4c on Nov 6, 2006, 10:17pm<br/><br/>OK...the front is different than the rear on the rear spring...<br/><br/>The bushing is &quot;made&quot; into the leaf...when I bought these, the metal sleeve is already in them...<br/><br/>I also have a spare frame and I checked the numbers versus the mounts on the frame...<br/><br/>Front eye of rear spring:<br/><br/>Bushing Id: .875 inch<br/>Mount on frame OD: .875 inch<br/>Width: 2.5 inch<br/>Outside of bushing/inside of leaf spring eye: 1.090 inch<br/><br/>Front eye of rear spring:<br/><br/>Bushing Id: 1.000 inch<br/>Mount on frame OD: 1.000 inch<br/>Width: 2.5 inch<br/>Outside of bushing/inside of leaf spring eye: 1.225 inch<br/><br/><br/>The OD of the bushing/ID of the spring eye is as close as I can get with it in their...it might be off slightly but I took great care to make sure I was at the edge and straight and measured several times...its gotta be pretty close...<br/><br/>One would have to press these pieces out and measure them to do better...<br/><hr size="1"/><b>Re: Back...spring bushing O.D.</b><br/>Post by m715jeep25 on Nov 7, 2006, 9:07am<br/><br/>This information was a great help!
