I dont get it.


When ordering from Rock auto, it says they will fit front or rear. Now i know each side has a front and a rear. So does that mean each kit will do the front AND rear of one side, 8 bushings and a shime for front and back. Or will one kit do both sides front and back with 2 shims for back only. Idk, its why im asking

Shims only in back. The kit should do all the leaf spring bushings.

Now i get it. Had a look through the Chiltons Manual and see that there are 6 bushings to a side. 2 big ones for the front and 4 smaller ones for the shackles. I'm gonna try to knock those out this weekend. And start on the v6 brake upgrade
