New Rear Suspension
I just picked up a new rear suspension kit, leaf springs, etc. from Chassis Engineering. The kit came with grade 5 hardware that I will replace with grade 8. My question is, should I use any kind of lubricant on the front spring hanger bolt and on the bushings in the shackles?
Thank You,

Are the bushings rubber or poly?

If they are rubber they go in dry (and don't tighten them till you put the weight of the car on them). If they are poly they need to be lubed.

The bushings are rubber. Thank you for the reply.
