Front Front Spring Shackle

Hey guys, I was told that there's a bushing in the forward shackle of the front springs (under the front bumper) that is factory molded into the shackle/mount and that those need to be replaced with OE or equivalent part?

I found that shackle/mount on the parts finder they are application specific LH + RH but they don't seem to have bushings in them. I though they were just mounted directly to the frame rail?

Is this person just blowing smoke or should I inspect these mythical factory-molded-into-shackle bushings? I couldn't find any info on this site or on the Googleverse.

Dorman makes a replacement shackle that is less expensive then the ford part.

I haven't used this part from Dorman but I would probably give them a try.
