FR36S Skyjacker 6" Leaf Spring Bushing on 2009

Hey all,

So I'm in the middle of swapping out my stock rear leafs for the Skyjacker 6" FR36S and I've realized a lesser known fact about the swap. The front bolts on my '09 ranger are too large for the skyjacker bushing. I tried to swap the bushings out (a 6" gear puller does the trick for removing them if you put a bolt through the bushing to have something for the puller's screw to push against).

Anyway, the stock bushing is too large to fit the Skyjacker leaf eye so I think I need bushings. I don't want to use a smaller bolt; seems to me that would rattle and hammer unnecessarily.

Has anyone run into this issue? How did you resolve it? Is there a bushing out there that will do the trick (outer diameter of the leaf's eye but inner diameter of the stock bolt).

Thank you!
