60mm Nylon Spring Bush suit 60mm wide Caravan Springs
60mm Nylon Spring Bush is a fantastic, self-lubricating trailer spring bush. The bush is easy to replace when the bushes have worn to a stage where they need replacement.
This size nylon spring bush can be difficult to locate because they can often be in short supply. Couplemate is a retail store and a major supplier of these bushes, so we are rarely never out of stock.
It can be difficult to find a good nylon bush. The best nylon bushes have the following qualities:
- Good fit both externally and internally.
- The material should not chatter or chip upon insertion.
- Shackle bolts should not be loose inside the nylon bush.
- Your bush should be a tight fit inside your spring.
When replacing a nylon bush, you will need to check your shackle bolts for wear and tear.
- ID 16mm
- OD 7/8″ or 22mm
- Length 60mm
To install, simply place the nylon bush over the top of the old nylon bush in your spring and tap with a hammer until the nylon bush is pushed out of the spring.
Your 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.
Alternatively, upgrade to a high tensile steel bush and greaseable shackle pins.
