Jeep J4000 leaf spring bushings measurements
I'm looking for more information about the leaf spring bushings from the jeep j-series trucks.
And especially for the 70/73 j4000 series.
I already have a part number for leaf spring bushings for the front spring eyes. (Did replace them 1.5 year ago)
It's a 63/64 gladiator bushing from origin and the bushing is to long ,so need it to cut to the right length.
But the inside and outside diameters are the right ones for the original j4000 front springs.
Part number: J0930525 (crown automotive leaf spring bushing)
I'm still looking for the front shackle bushing part number or useable bushings because could not find anything that corresponded (made two shackle bushings from a piece of round nylon bar.)
And also looking for bushings that fit the rear springs and shackles on the j4000 truck.
I haven't pulled the rear suspension apart but it's on the list to do that this summer.(complete tear down and rebuild)
Rear leafs are wider as the front , but haven't measured anything yet.
So it would be welcome to have some information or measurements to know what to look for.
Part numbers and measurements ,or part numbers from bushings that do work as a alternative are all welcome!
I have some measurements and a part number for the front bushings and going to post them in this thread asap.
(Have to look for them in my paper archive)
But in the meantime if someone that is owner or is working on the j-series trucks , and especially the j4000 and knows which parts fit or could work for the suspension and bushings would be very welcome!
