    You want the 1" OD bushings. Those will fit your stock spring eyes.

    Good luck! :cheers:

    From what I understand, the problems people were having with the conferr shackles was that they wouldn't fit over the flange on the bushings.

    You need bushings with a narrow shoulder for the shackle mounts on the frame.
