i have a 03 f350 with a 8 inch lift. I found i have a bad bushing on the front of my leave springs. Is it possible just to change the bushing or do i need a new leave spring. if it changable is it hard to push the old bushing out and install a new one
The old bushings don't want to come out. The sleeve around the rubber is so thin it's hard to get a good seat to press it out. Last few I've done I had to use a torch to burn the rubber out, and then press the outer collar. It may be tough sourcing a bushing if the lift kit isn't mainstream. Consider doing the rearmost bushing on the same leaf as well, if not all of them.
