Progressive 412 Shock Bushings - WARNING
I have some Progressive shocks (412-4005) that I purchased a while back from a user on here. I love the way they lower the rear and the ride isn't too harsh. But the bushings/dampers are super cracked and deteriorating. Since I was purchasing the parts to do my balance dampers, I went ahead and added in some new stock bushings to see if I could just replace the progressive ones with stock ones.
WARNING TO ALL: stock bushings will NOT fit. They are too small. So that's my bad.
So, I sent a note to progressive to see where I can get some of the correct bushings. In the meantime, how the hell do you get the old bushings out? They are grown in there! I had to completely mutilate the one that I did manage to get out and that took a long time and a lot of cussing.
Leave it to me to NOT be fond of something then end up banging it.
