Hey ya'll I need some new bushings for my leaf spring. I am having a hard time just finding a bushing kit for the ST. I see the kits all day long for a Ranger. Does anyone know if they would fit? Im looking to put some polyurethane bushings in. If anyone has a part number I would be grateful.

Cross reference the part numbers between the rubber Ranger bushings and the rubber Explorer bushings. If they are the same, the Ranger poly kit will work.

The ST has it's own bushings and eyelet size that's different from the Ex and Ranger. I learned this after researching and looking for new leafsprings. I'll look it up and see if I can find all the links and info for them.

Ok so which bushings exactly do you need? in frame upper shackle bushing, front and or rear spring bushings? The upper frame shackle bushing will work from a 2nd Gen Explorer, I used a set from a '97 Explorer Sport on my '03 ST.

Here's some pictures of specs for the leafsprings and eyelets, etc...

I am looking for all three on both sides. They are all cracked and chuncks are missing. Thats why I was hoping for a poly kit.

Looking for the same for a 2003. The links weren't real clear or I just missed it. Thanks.
