Like the rest of Daystar's extensive Polyurethane kits, Daystar Spring and Shackle Bushings are an excellent upgrade over stock rubber bushings. They allow less deflection while cornering and can help restore steering feel when used in the front of a vehicle. Like the rest of Daystar's Polyurethane products, these bushings are resistant to vehicle fluids and road grime. They also use a unique Polyurethane blend that ensures long life and consistent performance. Daystar's 30 years of experience has resulted in the widest selection of replacement bushings that you're going to find. Whether it's a vehicle restoration or an upgrade over rubber, Daystar spring and shackle bushings make a difference you can feel.
Overall the product is great. Easy installation. Tips for removing the old bushings would be very helpful. Having a wide variety of tools as I have helped tremendously. However a driveway diy might struggle with removal of old sleeve bushings and realignment of eye bolts at reassembly.
Purchased to go along with the Daystar 1.25" lift shackles (which do not come with bushings, but do come with bolts). Went all-Daystar on the rear shackles, plan on doing same on front shackles. So far, really good stuff.
I used these when replacing the leaf springs in my CJ5. I have used aftermarket bushings in years past and thought it was common to have to modify them slightly to make them work. Not so with these! I was happy to see that these bushings slipped right in with no effort, not too loose and not too tight. Very noticeable improvement in the handling department, my Jeep never cornered this good before! Of course off road these things are tough enough to take the abuse. Very happy I went with these.
What are the measurements of the bushings? I have 7/8" main eyes and 7/16" bolts, does this kit fit? thanks! Jaakko Pakarinen

Jaakko, the Daystar Spring Shackle Bushings are designed to fit the shackles of any Wrangler from 1987-1995. If you have a Jeep in that time frame, then these will fit with no problems!

Can you tell me the size of the bushings. The Jeep has a lift on it already and i'm not sure it the springs were replaced or just a add a leaf. My spring eyes are 2" and 1-1/4"

Hi Mopar The main eye on the stock spring bushing kits are 1 1/2 and shackle end is 1 1/4 on the Spring Shackle Bushings. Thanks
