Rear Up front Lift question?????????

I was preping my rear springs that I am going to use for my new lift kit. While I was cleaning out the bushing holes I noticed there was like a sleeve in the whole. My question is what needs to go, just the rubber or the whole sleve. If I need to remove the sleve how do I go about that. Thanks in advance!!!!!!!!!! TOM

You're talking about the large spring eye?

If you are doing this with our kit, we give you a new bushing and sleeve to fit standard 1/2" bolts.... which means just get rid of the stock bushings and sleeve.

I might also add that you are unlikely to be able to remove the stock bushings off the large springeye without removing the sleeve as well as it is a vulcanized unit.

Re: Rear Up front Lift question?????????

As Glenn said the sleeve will not come out on its own. I found the best way to get the bushing out is a drill and hole saw. The bushing is in 2 pieces so when you drill 1/2 way through you can probably get that 1/2 of the bushing out and then just knock the other part out with a hammer and screw driver. PM me if you need more details. Jim

i was always gonna ask this question, when you put the rears up front does it lift your zuku up anymore in the front?

Mine jumped up about 1.5" . That is with the stock rears, minus the overloads, and 4" drop link shackles...

When you added a couple springs from the front pack, did it make the ride a lot more stiff?
