just posted this on Studebaker Truck Farmers too:

Having a problem finding the correct fitting bushings for my 3/4 tn pickup's rear heavy duty springs. It has the Type 2 - steel encased, however, the shop manual shows them just having rubber bushings. The out diameter is 1-9/32", 2" wide and the inner diameter is 9/16".
Thanks!

The Studebaker Truck Parts Catalog will give you the CORRECT information!

Make the effort to find bushings with steel inner sleeves. The all-rubber bushings are junk and a waste of one's time to install.

A bit OT, but I found SAAB suspension bushings to be a fit when cut so they made a left and right half. Not something everyone has on the shelf, but I've been driving SAABs for family transportation for forty years now.
