    I own a 2000 toyota tacoma 4wd , i am replacing my sqeaky leaf spring bushing. i already bought new bushings for it but i need the bolts that hold them in (shackle pins?). I cant seem to find just the bolts/pins anywhere.

    SAS.. Need I say more.
    You sure the squeak isn't from just the leaf springs rubbing? Most of them have an anti friction pad between the leafs, generally doesn't allow it to squeak.

    well i can feel the vibrations coming from the front of the leaf spring where the bushing is at. i did oil the whole area just to see if it would fix it but it didnt

    here we go (again).

    I doubt it's the bushing, but you can lube it up with some Lithium grease and test your hypothesis. If you need some paid advice, call Dan over at Wheelers Offroad and have him fix you up with a new OME shackle set (greasable). Everything you need is in there. Run your issue past Dan - it can't hurt - and he's seen it all...
