I have camburg extended F150 radius arms. I got some new bushings for them but ran into a issue. In the attached picture, you can see the old bushing and the new red one. Has anyone put in this type of bushing before. It seems the tapper at the top is to long on the new one. I cant get the nut or the wahser on. They are the right bushings for my truck and year. Is there another type of bushing out there being used? Any info would be great.
Thanks

I knwo this doesnt answer your question...but use stock bushings, they are a lot better then any aftermarket ones out there. Stock minis run them and beat the crap out of them so they DO work well.

Use stock bushings they last way longer. They dont crack apart like urethane either.

Thanks for the info. The stores are closed, so i cant call places but does anyone know if pep boys or autozone carry the stock rubber ones. I got some from napa the other day and they were a hard molded plastic. Or do I have to go to FORD.

Moog makes a good kit, but do not use the plastic ring just the bushings and the metal hardwear.

also, I'm not sure what year your f1 is, but I just replaced mine with urethane, and yours appear to have a larger cone than mine. Maybe you got the wrong year?

I thought about the year thing but it says 86-92 on the package. Mine is an 89 2wd. I went to a 24hr Autozone and got some replacement ones tonight, and those are shorter than the black stock one and they range from 86-96 F150's. So im not sure what is right. I am going to try another place tomarrow and then go to Ford and research it.

theres a 24 hour autozone in Escondido across from Frazee paint and Taco Bell. I think the street is Broadway, one of the North South streets

At baseball games they play organs, in motorsports they donate them.

the aftermarket world is a mighty one. but when it comes to certain parts, factory stock, they have no equal.
