I have a 68 ss rs bb car with the 5 leaf springs. I would like to install new bushings and when I removed the old ones it appears that they were both installed on the same side. When I measured each side, one side was 1/2" the other approx. 3/4" . The outer steel jacket measured 2 1/2". My question is should I install them on opposite or does it matter if they are on the same side. Thanks for any advise.

They can go in either way. When they get pressed in the distance from side to side should be the same. Personally I would install them from the outside or inside so it looks the same from side to side.

Thanks Garth I will also install them from the outside or inside for the looks. I still not sure why Chevy installed them in the same direction. My car had only 27,000 miles on it and was stored for approx. 35 years. I know that I am the 5th owner and the last one as it will stay in the family. Thanks again
