45mm Steel Spring Bush | to suit Caravan and Trailer Shackle Springs
45mm steel spring shackle bush is a fantastic replacement where the usage of nylon bushes creates too much wear and you need to go to a heavier bushing system.
When using steel bushes you will need to upgrade to greaseable shackle bolts.
- ID 16mm
- OD 7/8″ or 22mm
- Length 41mm
- Suit 45mm wide spring
To install simply place the steel bush over the top of the nylon shackle bush and tap with a hammer until the nylon bush is pushed out of the spring.
Spring shackle bushes must be checked regularly and greased when necessary. It is also good practice to remove the shackle pin and check both the hanger and the pin for wear.
Also, inspect the shackle plates and shackle pins attached to the 45mm spring before purchasing your trailer parts.
