Hey all - I've searched and can't seem to find a Sport Trac specific answer. Need new bushings on my rear leaf springs and I'm coming across conflicting information/opinions on the forum. Sounds like these are pressed in bushings with outer metal-rubber-inner metal; can anyone confirm before I drop the springs?

Anyone have recommendations on replacement bushings/process or if you guys say just go with new leaf springs? Found replacement leaf springs on SD Truck Springs but it's ~$500/pair. If replacing bushings, outer metal stay in or come out?

If I missed a thread on this, please scold me and point me to it! Thanks in advance.
