    There are three bushings per spring. Two in the spring eyes and one in the hanger. All three are the same bushing.

    You may find the "silent block" OEM bushings to a real pain to remove/replace. Often, the rubber part and inner sleeve can be pressed out, but the outer sleeve sometimes has to be relief cut to remove. They can be pressed in with a big vice, or a long threaded bolt and socket, but this can be challenging too.
    I still prefer the original bushing to the aftermarket urethane ones.
