    Got the Dakar medium kit. It came with 6 sets of bushings. I installed 4 sets into the leafs. What are the 2 domed top bushings for?

    That’s what I thought. Till I burned a bushing out of the shackle then went to install the bushing. The shackle is about 36mm while the bushing supplied is 40mm

    Interesting.
    I received 6 sets of identical bushings with mine, but did not end up replacing the shackle bushings, so I don't know how/ if they'd fit.
