Default chassis mount bush springs

I have searched and read that a few people here have previously replaced the steel bushes in the chassis for the spring shackles, so I was wondering if anyone has the part number or know where I can get the steel bushes to replace them as I couldn't find a part number in the parts catalogue and the local nissan dealer couldn't find one either. Thanks

I replaced mine when i put new springs in as they came with the lift kit. I would imagine most suspension companies could supply them. Mine came in an EFS kit so you could start with them.

I will try them, but I think you are talking about the bush in the spring and not the solid steel ones in the spring hanger on the chassis as the kits I have seen from EFS didn't have them. thanks

I got the poly/rubber ones and the steel bush in my kit. All bushes were included.

I got my kit from these guys http://www.carrolls.com.au
I think they are a spring works so It's possible that it's their part and not an EFS part.

I gave them a ring and they said they only have the spring eyes and spring shackles bushes and not the steel one in the spring hanger mount on chassis. Maybe I will have to remove one and get some made to suit.

I actually ended up getting some today without knowing I was getting them.. I had ordered a new pair of greasable shackles for $50 posted and they actually had the bush / sleeve on the pin that goes in the hanger mount so all I have to see is how easy the old ones want to come out.

My guess is the original bushes won't come out easily

^x2.
Replaced the steel bushes in my first patrol and they did not want to come out.
I think we ended up cutting through them along their length with a hacksaw in 4 places then belted them out with a bit of steel rod of a similar diameter and a big hammer. It would probably be easier if you can heat them up an oxy torch.

I'm sure mine weren't easy but i don't remember having that much trouble with them. Getting the rear shackles in was a ***** of a job with only one pair of hands, if i recall correctly. I think it was hard to fit it past the body with the fixed pins.

I am hoping they won't be too hard as I had a go on a parts car and I found an old ram shaft about 2.5 to 3 feet long in the shed which had a an end that fitted inside the bush and a step that went inside the hanger and got me old man to hold it near the spring mount so I could hit it and not hit him with the sledge hammer if i missed as the bull bar is still on it and with only a couple of hits it had moved 20mm, so I am hoping it will be the same on the car I want to remove them from. The shaft will only get it to move maybe 2/3 of the way until it steps up again, but after moving that far I should be able to get a bolt and push it the rest of the way or even use the new one which I guess I should chuck in the freezer to try and shrink it a bit seeing I don't think you can get dry ice near here anymore.
