    I've read that you need to order leaf spring bushings. But it seems like I have all of them. Am I missing something? There's 2 on each leaf spring????

    To put the bushings in the springs? It takes 30 seconds.

    oh ok....for some reason I was under the impression it might be like putting the bushings in the LR UCA.....they're a bitch most say and tear sometimes.

    Thanks for the info.

    The bushings for the rear of those Dakars just push in by hand. Easy!

    Anyone know where I can get a set of bushings for my 13 DC SB. Got the Dakar from Headstrong and it has a bushing at the front but not the rear. Know what I can ask for at the dealer or local parts store? Thanks.

    Headstrong has them too, you should have asked to include them. The manufacturer only installs only one side which makes no sense at all.

    OR you can just use the factory rubber ones, just a bitch to remove.

    PB Blaster usually works pretty good when you're trying to remove old spring bushings.

    Those rubber bushings are garbage though, so almost not ever worth reusing.

    Is it true the Dakars are not good for actual load carrying?
