Ordered new rear leafs and sliders for our 78 camaro. I'm trying to install both but the bushing for the leaf spring is to wide to fit in the sliders I have. I'm wondering if I have the wrong part or do I need to modify the bushing for the leaf to work with the slider. Has anyone went through this.

i believe sliders are designed to work with chrysler style leaf springs. you should be able to modify(narrow) the bushing and make it work. i made a set work with stock ford leafs...

just use a sawsall and cut the shoulder of your bushings, it is easiest with them in the spring, its really easy.
