Spring Plate Bushings, 1-7/8in I.D., Knobby, Urethane, Red, Bugpack

New Spring Plate Bushings, 1-7/8in I.D., Knobby, Urethane, Red, Bugpack

Over the years your stock rubber bushings have taken a lot of abuse and should be replaced. These re-designed spring plate grommets constructed of a Polyurethane compound offer both a superb fit and ride. Available in red Polyurethane for both swing axle and IRS applications. Work great with aftermarket spring plate covers. Rear spring plate grommets designed not to crunch and “bottom out” as soft stock rubber grommets do.  For a softer bushing use the Bugpack/EMPI black urethane bushings/grommets. Made in the USA  

Application Information: Using stock spring plates for the following years. In 1968 Volkswagen introduced the Auto-stick and this option used an IRS rear suspension.
