I just got some 5-leaf Deavers and Daystar shackles w/ poly bushings. Any ideas on removing the bushings from the new springs other than using a BFH? Unfortunately, I do not have a torch :(

Also, I'm assuming the spring with the greater arch goes on the driver's side?? Thanks.

After searching the net it sounds like torching the bushings out is the easiest way to go. I guess I'll head down to the local shop & see what they can do. I don't think my propane torch would cut it??

I would say with a hammer sense the springs are new

Got access to an air hammer? Put the spring in a vice or some other suitable device to hold it, I usually remove the bushings with the cutting bit, but you could use any of the bits.

Dont use a torch on those leaf springs, deaver springs dont have a sleeve for the bushings like factory, they shouldjust push right out, they are two halves...
