    How to remove this bushing??

    How do you like the Tough Country springs? I'm thinking of doing the same with 2" of lift, already did the shackles same as you.

    Project m1010

    Somewhat similar, since my '84 M1028 only has about 58k miles I went with a rebuilt NP208 and now have my OEM NP208 with a crack in the rear case half to repair with a replacement case half and have on standby as a spare.
