Trunion Bushings

Recommended Posts

Ok I'll admit it, I am a shade tree mechanic but I'll tackle about any job. I am changing a spring and bushings in my 79'

Mack Valueliner. My question is: how do you change the Trunion bushing without taking the spring housing off?? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also, what are the best bushings to buy? All I am doing is hauling farm equipment.

Thanks,

Tom

you will have to drop the trunion down it is a lot easier if you take the wheels off get ubolts to very seldom do they ever come lose put jack stands under each axel put a jack in the middel of the trunion from behind the truck and when you drop the bottom plate off let down on the jack enough to to get the bushing off put neverseize on the u bolts were they go threw the bottom plate so you dont have to beat them out next time i have been using neaprene bushings if you have rubber ones unless it is a heavy duty and has bronze bushings good luck
