    Shock bushing question

    Hey guys quick question. I got ahold of some take off Rubicon shocks recently. They are like new except for the fact that they don't have any bushings in them. I would just reuse the ones from my stock shocks, but I can't seem to get them out without a press. Does anyone know if the hour glass shapes universal bushings are meant for the stock in shocks. The bore is straight walled where they go but I wasn't sure if they expanded when you tighten them up.

    They are a dime a dozen on Craigslist. Just get a different set.

    You can get aftermarket ones too like Rancho. A hammer, socket, vice, and lots of lube will get them in. Just like a typical Friday night.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
