Rear Leaf Spring Bushings - Toyota Tacoma - 181006
Prothane Leaf Spring and Shackle Bushings
Vehicles with a leaf spring and shackle set up lean heavily on the springs to take the shock out of a bump. Not only does a leaf spring reduce the force of a bump that you feel, but it also evenly distributes the load across the chassis instead of the whole load pressing down on one point. Your ability to get to point A to point B without scraping the pavement is heavily dependent on the leaf spring and shackle bushings which mount the spring to the frame.
Prothane's polyurethane is a stronger material for the mounting points of a leaf spring and shackle. Polyurethane leaf spring bushings are able to handle the stress from the suspension and are not vulnerable to road grime. With Prothane's polyurethane, you can protect your vehicle's ability to carry a load, and your bumpy free ride, for years to come.
Replacing the Faulty Rubber
O.E. leaf spring and shackles utilize a soft rubber bushing to mount the spring to the frame. The rubber is great for reducing the noise and vibrations from being transferred into the cab. Unfortunately, rubber bushings have a short lifespan. Once the rubber fails, due to wear and tear or road grime, a leaf spring's effectiveness is severely reduced. Meaning you will experience a very bumpy ride, the vehicle's ability to carry a load or tow is hindered greatly and you'll experience a loss of control.
Use Prothane's Super Grease
Leaf spring and shackle bushings handle a lot of stress from the vehicle load, so be sure to use the supplied Prothane's Super Grease to lubricate the bushings during installation. Its super important that you lubricate each bushing well to prevent any squeaking. If you'd like some extra grease just in case, pick up an extra 3 pack.

starstarstarstarstar" Great Product, but... "
Did not install. Have a 23 year old Toyota Pickup. After reading reviews I decided there is a reason the factory uses rubber. Mine lasted 23 year and still have life. For daily driving, rubber is more compliant and wont squeak. Im sure the urethane are better under extreme stress like off-roading, but for most apps Ive decided to stick with the bushings installed in the spring. Editors Note: It is very important to use the Prothane Super Grease. The outside of the bushing should be lubricated to aid with installation. The inside of the bushing where the sleeve rotates needs the most grease. The sleeve rotates inside the poly bushing. When not greased the bushing will squeak. \nverified_user Verified Buyer - Ronald W. Bradstock - . Prothane 181006 - 5 out of 5
starstarstarstarstar" Good "
The bushings felt like they were of good quality. The only downside was that I had to saw them off a bit, but that wasn't a big problem.verified_user Verified Buyer - Edvard Henriksen - . Prothane 181006 - 5 out of 5
starstarstarstarstar" very good good fit easy to work "
The bushings had all I needed to fit my truck also had extra parts to fit other trucks of different years. The bushings were of very high quality material. They will last longer than the truck itself. They also had a very good price, cheaper than local parts house.They did not have what I needed at the time I ordered. Told me they were on back order. They offered to refund my money or they would have my parts in about 2 weeks. The parts were at my house in less than 10 days. I thought that was above the call of duty. Good people to deal with I --WILL BUY FROM THEM AGAIN---thanks Edward Jenkins from Charlotte N.C.verified_user Verified Buyer - edward jenkins - . Prothane 181006 - 5 out of 5
