Has anyone used the orbit eye bushings for leaf springs, I am thinking of putting some on my yj. I was also wondering how much they cost.

Hope you have deep pockets iirc they are 4-500 each.

I had alcans on my 95. Years ago. But I did not have orbital eyes. I can't remember what I paid for them but they were awesome springs.

I have seen some guys run them on Yota's in JV. They seemed to work well for them.

Properly functioning suspension shouldn't need them. I like to keep everything on a trail rig. Regular shackles, regular springs, etc.... Fixing an orbital eye on the trail doesn't seem fun.
