    Also, check your local area for a spring shop. I picked up 2 new rear leaf spring bushings for about $10/each. I only needed one, but since the shop was a ways from my house, a spare would be a good idea just in case.

    In my case it was called Denver Spring and Suspension.

    I'm sure this has already been answered, but are the spring bushings on a 97 ford explorer the same size as a 98 ford explorer?

    Just slid one in from the outside of the frame in. Seemed to stop at the right point. Going to put the other side in and see if that centers everything

    Got both in, seems to be good and even but haven’t gone for a drive. 4 hour job to do both sides with taking my time to burn the old bushings out
