Front leaf spring shackle bushings

For those of you who are planning on replacing your frame mounted shackle bushings during a front leaf spring swap or wore out 20 year old vehicle maintenance, better get to the Dodge dealer and get these ordered. They are not stocked in warehouses, but are limited to individual dealer inventory across the country. These are a dealer only, no aftermarket support and could very well go NO LONGER AVAILABLE. The part number is 2953700, list price of $14.45. You need two per side, four per vehicle. It took two weeks for all four of mine to come in. Each coming from a different dealer around the country. I went ahead and placed another order for four more for a future project or investment lol.

Imo, it's easier to replace the whole thing with jungles kit although more expensive.

I just used poly spring-eye bushings, if you torch out the rubber and drive out the little sleeve they're the exact same size as our leaf spring eyes.

Can you provide a manufacturer and/or part number for the poly spring-eye bushings?

TIA.
