I have two different leaf spring front bushings, I know the biggest one fits the 55 champion sedan but what does the other smaller size fit?
(1) 1.50 (fits champion sedan) - purchased from Chuck C. listed for 55 sedan
(2) 1.386 = 1 3/8 fits ??? - purchased from sasco listed for 55 sedan (both can't be right??)
Do the C/K's have smaller front bushings?

Must be the mystery of the week. I don't know, but I thought I would give this a bump.

The 1 3/8 in. Front of rear spring bushing is 536517, the 1 1/2in. bushing is 1539484. Your Studebaker Chassis Parts Catalogs will tell you that the 536517 fits '55-'57 and the 1539484 fits '58-'66. [:0]
