Bushing Question

I am planning on buying some Old Man Emu leaf springs but wasn't sure which bushings to use. Should I go with these http://www.quadratec.com/products/16090_700.htm or with these http://www.quadratec.com/products/16090_701.htm Or is there a better alternative? Thanks in advance

Honestly a bushing is a bushing in my eyes. The will all act the same once you start twisting and torquing them. I say go get a kit for exactly what you need. Either all 4 leaf spring bushings or front/rear. Whichever suits your needs. I say this because with the YJ spring one bolt is 1/2 and the other 9/16. I believe? If your not sure what your doing you might mess this up. I have a time or two. As far as grease-able I say it's not really worth it. Unless you live in the salt belt and wont touch them for 10 years.

Make sure the bushings you get fit your springs. Not all are the same size. Tbh, I would go with the cheapest poly bushings for your springs. My pro comp bushings held up great and flexed great. Really cheap too.

So even though the greasable are less i shouldn't go with them. The other ones are worth it?

It's a mystery to me why the greaseable are less expensive than the non-greaseable. But unless I had some reliable dimensions to work with, I would not try to use some other brand bushings than what matches the springs. Best get the ones that match your application, either with grease or without. If you're not going with their greaseable bolts and sleeves, you better pay the extra for the non-grease bushings. Odd as that seems to me.
