94 F250 I-beam bushings

Are there any aftermarket bushings for the Twin I-Beams (2wd)
Mine are shot and dealer says you need to replace whole I-beam which
is no longer available. Any help appreciated

Do you have to remove the I-beam or can these bushings be replaced by just droping the center part down ? Do the bushings need to be pressed in ? Any help appreciated.

Not to go off topic or anything but, how did you know the bushings were worn out, or did the dealer tell you?

I put a jack under the I, beam, removed the bolt and SLOWLY released the jack to lower the I-beam, I did not even take the tires off, pressed out the bushings, think it was a u-joint press, like a big c-clamp, the one side of it was big enough for the bushings to pass through it. Used pb blaster to help loosen the bushings, took an hour or so both sides total.

I like to look underneath what I'm driving , I'm actually shocked at how bad they were egged out. Truck has around 235,000 miles. They are so bad I'm concerned the bolt could snap. I can't believe this was not noticed at last state inspection. I'll try to take a picture and post

So far I have been told the whole I-beam needs to come off, but looking at it myself, the way you describe is how I thought it can be done.
My concern is trying to do this myself on the ground without the truck falling on top of me. The older I get the more chicken I get I guess.
I don't have a u-joint press but will have to look for one.
Thanks for quick response

I think you could do it with a heavy piece of all-thread, some thick washers and a short section of pipe to pull the bushing into, if you can't find a press, can usually rent/borrow one from a parts house

Did you have to change your bolts ?
Local parts stores around here are asking if my bolts are 1/2 or 5/8 , to get the right bushing
My bolts are metric and between the 2 standard sizes.

I put Energy Suspension polyurethane bushings in both my trucks. On 2wd's, the poly bushings have to be installed inside the stock steel outer "cup" that goes around the bushing and presses into the I beams. When I did mine on my 2wd, I didn't even press out the cups. Just cut out the old rubber, ran some sandpaper around the cup to get all the left over rubber off of it, install new poly bushings, bolt I beam back in.

Took us less time to do I beam bushings on my truck than it took 2 guys to change a belt on an '06 Dodge with a Cummins in it. LOL
