I have fj40 1975 trying to add greasable bolts they are 5/8 size, bolt will not go in because their is a sleeve inside factory hanger. Can I remove sleeve and not affect integrity of hanger, Hangers are on front. adding new bushings also. Is the purpose of sleeve if it is brass ? their for lubrication ? Thank u

Never seen a sleeve bushing used on the 40 series springs.
U could probably remove it when installing new bushings

I'm thinking PO had the wrong size bushings for his springs or shackles, so merely added bushings.
