Replacment bushing sets?

Somehow I have managed to make this a lot more complicated than necessary, but I am having difficulty determining which bushings I need for a suspension lift I am piecing together. I'm using 3.5" Fabtech springs, and would like to pick up a new set of bushings to go with the springs. First of all, how many total bushing sets will I need? If I understand it correctly, I will need 3 bushing sets per spring, for a total of 12. Right so far?

Will these two kits be all I need for the suspension lift?

Also, any specific brand to stick with? Thanks!

it all depends on what springs you are using. You will need upper shackle bushings, lower shackle bushings and frame/leaf bushings. so you are correct on 3 sets to do it properly. If your not purchasing the complete kit then you will need to check the springs to see what size bushings they use. Procomp for example uses the same bushings on both leaf eyes which also requires a 9/16 bolt on both sides and you need to drill out your shackle mounts to fit. You would then be using the same larger bushings on both sides of the leafs and the bushing kit you listed wouldnt work. It's a little more work but it's a lot stonger. If you dont have the springs yet you will need to ask the compnay your getting them from to know for sure
