What is this thing?

The product you are looking at here is sometimes referred to as “rubbers’ to some people. However, the real name for this item is a bushing. They are called “rubbers” because of the material that they are constructed from which is rubber, of course.

What is this thing supposed to do?

The bushings are little rubber pads tasked with aiding in the job of absorbing the shock related to the imperfections you encounter when driving down the road. They work in concert with other components of the suspension system to ensure that you have as smooth of a ride as possible.

Now, what kind of bushing do we have here?

This product is a bushing for the leaf spring inside your Sprinter Van.

Alright… so where in my car can I find these things? 

Bushings can be found on any component along with the suspension where two parts of metal form a joint. The purpose of the bushings is to prevent the metal surfaces from grinding against one another and causing unnecessary stress and friction.

  • During an inspection of your vehicle you will likely see bushings on the following parts:
    • Stabilizer bars
    • Steering parts
    • Strut mounts
    • Ball Joints
    • Transmission mounts
    • Control arms
    • Suspension
    • Tie rods
    • Engine
    • Shock absorbers

Ok so more specifically, what kind of bushings are out there? 

The bushings that most commonly need to be replaced are the following:

  • Mount bushes
  • Shock absorber bushes
  • Anti-roll bar drop link bushes
  • Control arm bushes
  • Anti-roll bar bushes

How will I know my bushings need to be replaced? 

The quality of the rubber material is what gives bushings their ability to buffer the tremors and noises of turbulence. When the quality of a set of bushings wears down, the impacts of shock and the noises that a vehicle might make are liable to become more noticeable within the cab of a truck.

When should I replace my bushings? 

There is no set timeframe for when to change suspension bushings. They wear down at different speeds in different vehicles. It really depends on the environment where you operate the vehicle and the amount of stress you put it through on a regular basis. Basically, you will know when to change bushings in a car or truck whenever the symptoms of bad bushings make it difficult to operate your vehicle.

How will I know if it is my bushings that need to be replaced and not the actual parts? 

The answer could depend on the cost and labor involved as well as whether or not the bushing can be accessed without replacing the part. Generally, individual bushing replacement is the best option when the bushing can be accessed and removed at a reasonable cost. Oftentimes, however, auto service specialists will recommend that you replace the corresponding vehicle component along with the bushings, even if the problem is confined to the latter. Advice like this is generally down to the assumption that — since age has taken its toll on the bushings — the component in question has likely reached its final stretch of usefulness.

On certain components, it is not possible to replace the bushings alone. On a control arm, for example, it is virtually impossible to remove the bushings. Consequently, when the bushings wear out on a control arm, it is simply time to replace the control arm. Certain other parts can also be time-intensive when it comes to isolating the bushings.

I don’t need to replace them for a while… but do I have to service my bushings regularly?

Unlike ball joints and tie rods, it is not necessary to service the suspension bushings of a truck on a regular basis. Bushings are generally resilient in the face of vibrations and road shock but are vulnerable to the effects of heat and petroleum.

What are some signs of my suspension bushings going bad? 

  • Typical tell-tale signs of worn bushings under a vehicle include the following symptoms:
    • The vehicle makes rattling noises when driven over gravelly roads.
    • The vehicle sounds as though it is clunking when you make sharp turns or hit the brakes.
    • The vehicle feels as though it is trembling along the front portion.
    • The steering seems more difficult to handle.
    • The steering feels looser than before.

What problems do worn suspension bushings cause?

Worn bushings can make a car more difficult to steer. With the suspension compromised, bad bushings are liable to make riding less comfortable and more dangerous. The reduced shock absorption can make suspension and engine components more vulnerable to the physical effects of vehicular tremors. Metal joints left unprotected by worn bushings can cause damage and lead to premature parts failure.

What do bad bushings feel like?

Bushings often go bad when the rubber dries out. Consequently, a bad bushing will feel hard and inflexible. From the cab of a truck, bad suspension bushing makes riding feel more turbulent and jumpy.

What happens when bushings go bad?

When bushings fail, a truck is more difficult to drive due to the lack of proper suspension. A truck can be dangerous to drive with faulty bushings

I think I’ll do it myself, can you tell me how can I replace the bushings in my car?

The steps involved in bushing replacement are relatively easy to master and can usually be completed in under an hour once you get the hang of how it is done. However, the first time that you repair the bushings on your truck, the steps can take several hours to complete. Therefore, it is best to reserve this undertaking for a free afternoon.

1. Set Aside Bushing Replacement Tools: 

  • A floor jack
  • Two jack stands
  • An open-end wrench
  • Clamps
  • A flat head screwdriver
  • A torque wrench
  • To protect against the possibility of fluid loss from the truck when you have the vehicle suspended, it might be necessary to have a receptacle on hand.

2. Suspension- LOWER IT

Along the rear suspension, take off the shock absorbers and bolts. This will allow you to lower the rear suspension. Disconnect the rear brake lines if necessary. In order to access the suspension bushings, you will have to remove the rear suspension assembly. If the rear suspension on your truck is independent, the two sides can each be taken off separately. To elevate the truck, raise the rear with a jack and secure the vehicle in suspension with jack stands.

3. Rear Bushing Assembly should be disengaged

Each side will have one or more of these components. With the suspension out of the way, take off the part of the assembly that contains the suspension bushing. Loosen and remove the center bolt to remove the assembly.

4. Bushing Assembly —>Clamp them

With the suspension bushing assembly removed from the truck, bring it into your garage and set it on a table. In order to keep the assembly held in place as you remove the bushings, use either a vice or two clamps.

5. Old Suspension bushing removal 

With the bushing assembly firmly secured to the table or workbench, use a screwdriver to force out the old bushing from the assembly.

6. Suspension parts need to be removed

Coat all the parts that will be touching one another in the assembly. Before you apply a new bushing, lubricate the suspension parts.  The lubrication is necessary to ensure the friction-less movement of the parts in contact with each other. Only with lubrication will the rubber remain in ample condition and the metal parts be spared the corrosive effects of movement and contact.

Without lubrication, all of these steps would likely be for naught. Lubrication must be amply applied, as this will keep the parts moving smoothly and free of noise.

7. Suspension Bushing Assembly now needs to be reassembled

Put the new bushings in place and reapply the nuts and washers. after you lubricate liberally and make sure it is applied to all the touching parts, put the pieces of the bushing assembly back together.

8. The Bushing Assembly to the vehicle’s Rear Suspension now needs to be re-attached

Reattach the bushing assembly to the rear suspension of the truck. This involves reversing the steps that disengaged the assembly from the vehicle. As you fit the washers, make sure that everything is reassembled in the proper order. With all the parts secure and fastened, torque the bolt according to the specs of your truck. Do these steps again along the other side if necessary.

Remove the jack stands and lower the truck to the ground.

9. After that take the truck for a test drive & enjoy the newly enhanced performance.

If the prior performance issues — noises, tremors, etc. — are now gone, Good Job! Successful completion of your first change of truck bushings is now complete!
