Wow wonder why they broke so bad
I'm willing to blame myself this time, even though I used synthetic grease (not silicone like they recommended)after the factory supplied silicone grease washed out within a few weeks of use. But I also think this may be a case of Spohn not designing the bushings to fit the brackets on the truck frame properly. Virtually little to no clearance between the brackets for the bushings to fit without rubbing. Possibly overtorqued the bolts to pinch the bushings in between the bracket too. Not sure, but I don't want to blame Spohn just yet

I see a couple possibilities in the Why dept. 1- Bushings too soft. 2- Misalignment/preload. Notice 2 of 4 bushings split, Same side/direction of force? 3- non compatible lubricant.
Good luck, keep posting updates.
Shit..glad I seen this pic b4 pulling the plug on those pricey rear arms. I just wanted to purchase them to move my rear wheels back after dropping the suspension in the rear.
