Kevlar Front Upper Shackle Hanger w/ Non Greasable Bushing Assembly
Kevlar Front upper shackle hanger, kevlar, non-greasable Includes brackets/hardware and greasable bushing/sleeve/bolt for both sides
We've implemented new Kevlar infused polyurethane bushings into our entire lineup, any of our products with suspension bushings in them will now have the best bushings available!
Infusing Kevlar into polyurethane doubles the tensile strength, tear resistance, and increases the life of the part by cross linking the polyurethane. We elected to keep the same durometer (stiffness) so as not to inhibit suspension travel, as well as keeping the black color everyone is used to. Basically with double the tensile strength, the bushing can be pushed harder and still come back to it's original shape. All of that means using your truck more and maintaining it less, and reduces the cost of replacing bushings!
Due to its wide range of elastomeric properties and strength factors, Kevlar Infused polyurethane out handles, out preforms, and outlasts other similar polyurethane materials on the market.
We also added chamfers to make bushing install easier!
Non-greasable Kevlar Front Upper Shackle Hanger (FUSH) kit
The stock upper shackle hanger takes a 1-1/8" bushing which just isn't up to heavy offroad use. Our fix is simple, we build a new bracket to take a bigger bushing. This replacement hanger bolts into the factory bolt holes and uses a 1-1/2" bushing with a 1/2" shoulder along with a heavy wall inner sleeve and a 9/16" bolt. This should be the end of upper shackle bushing durability problems.
This is the answer to big trucks with leaf springs and hard offroad use. The bushing size difference is pretty obvious and so is the durability difference. Our FUSH is also popular for guys converting to longer springs and especially when using longer shackles with increased leverage over the bushings.
The FUSH kit comes with premium Grade 8 bolts with hard washers and locking nuts. Installation requires removing the factory rivets, drilling the holes to a slightly larger size (7/16" drill required) and enlarging the central hole in the frame slightly.
