1993 f53 front leaf spring bushings

Help! I have spent the last 3 hours doing research trying to find the replacement front leaf spring bushings for my 1993 ford f53 motorhome chassis and have come up completely empty. Anybody have the numbers for the bushings or a replacement poly bushing set? thanks, Tim

A leaf spring company can tell you for sure. It could be different size options and you may need to measure yours.

Here's a list of different ones by size: https://www.stengelbros.net/Rubber-Bushings_c_411.html

Could be a RB-304 and RB-305 bushing.

What I have found so far they may be a 1 1/2" x 4" shelled bushing but can not find anything close. The sd springs are for the later chassis with the v10. Thanks for the response and help.

There are very few 4" options.

If you can find a local to you company like the following they can make up new springs for you and have it use a bushing that is still manufactured. The original ford ones are no longer available.

https://www.denverspringandsuspension.com/

If you don't have a company like this locally it couldn't hurt to try calling them.

Also here are two more links that may help better find an options that would work.

Link 1: https://www.truckspring.com/suspensi.../bushings.aspx

Link 2 (similar as before but with pictures): Replacement Leaf Spring Bushings - Stengel Bros Inc.

Good luck!
