F150 Spring Bushing Help

Fellas,

Please pardon my ignorance, and I apologize for such a newbie question.

I run F150 springs from an early 90s Ext. Cab 2wd (2.5" wide). I'm looking for bushings that don't have a metal sleeve for the bolt. Rubber or poly doesn't matter to me. I'm looking for bushings for the rearmost spring eye. I believe the frame mount (frontside) is a 1.25" opening, so I'm looking for the bushings for the larger of the two eyes.

Dimensions I think are 1.5" OD of the "barrel", .75" bolt through the middle (smaller is acceptable, as I can drill it out), and each piece should be 1.5" wide (longer acceptable).

I have looked at Energy Suspension, but I can't seem to find one to meet those parameters.

Any help is greatly appreciated!!!

Here's what I found:


http://www.silverstarcustoms.com/sto...products_id=64

Right dimensions. I verified via emails with the owner, but I'm not paying $30 plus shipping for some bushings


http://www.energysuspensionparts.com...e-Bushings.asp

I couldn't find the dimensions I was looking for here...


http://www.performancesuspension.com...gbushings.html

Individual bushings not listed, and it was too late to call...


http://www.prothane.com/

Same as above...




So I went ahead and ordered these from Jeg's -

Size I'm looking for, and about $22 shipped for 4 bushings / 2 leaf spring eyes
