    The longer ones might replace the top bushings. No sleeves in those. Maybe one extra set of bushings per side?

    The longer ones looks to be the top. I’m stumped if one end has a sleeve I’m supposed to reuse I think not as the stock leaf bushings are the same but I could be wrong..

    I remember scratching my head too with those. The long one is upper shackle. The short ones are front and rear leaf. Let me check my truck for sleeves

    Never mind. I don’t have x-ray vision. Can’t see the bushing sleeves haha. That does seem odd. Like mentioned earlier call a OME install shop and ask. Im trying to remember but I think one of the leaf bolts is bigger than the other one. I think the front is no sleeve and the rear(more turning due to shackle) has the sleeve.

    Nope I’m wrong. Front uses the sleeve because it’s not a greasable joint. Rear uses the greaseable bolts. See

    Planned on that but looks like I’m gonna need another set of leaf bushing sleeves since I don’t have the greasable bolts and new shackles

    Good luck getting the original sleeve out. I’m sure that will be seized in there

    You should be able to just use the lower bushings for now with oem shackle. Replace the uppers when you get the new shackles. Uppers are easy no need for a press.

    Try sliding that lower sleeve over the oem shackle to see if the diameter fit. I believe they were same diameter.

    No, the ome leaf pack is already equipped with a bushing for front mount.
    You will just use the two in the rear with your shackles.

    Ok for future reference for anyone you need another bushing sleeve (or leave it loose and sloppy without one what I did in the rear til Monday when I can machine one at work) if you use ome poly bushings. Also the bushing in the stock upper shackle doesn’t fit in the new poly upper bushings so I just left the stock upper bushings in. My guess is they do this to make you spend more money on the darn greasable shackles and pins
