I'll look on my 52 and 55 sitting out back but the 60 that I've also worked on none of these have a rubber encased anything on a front spring hanger or pin, the rears were screw ins and the fronts I believe are push ins with  a bronze bushing pressed into the front spring eye.
 If it is something different put a picture up and we might be able to identify something.


I can't get anymore out of it, I've got both sticks hot clear up to the knobs allready.

You let on like you were working on the steer axle, by the pictures your working on the rear axle with what looks like Recyo suspension, Euclid should have those parts.
