What are these? The bushings are grooved inside.

Bushings for where shackles go. The hole is for the oiler. A driver to drive them with and a bolt

Bill, Tom may be correct. However, I have never seen shackle bushes with the oil grooves here in Australia. It would help if you can post the dimensions. To me they look like front shackle bushes going on the length, but then the inside diameter seems a little on the large side.

Are they steel or brass/bronze? My new shackle bushings were steel. I think brass would be too softbfor shackles???

They might be for the lower steering bracket. Dimensions would help.

You can buy ether brass or steel shackle bushings. Some use the brass as it's cheaper to replace the brass bushing rather then the shackle when the bushing wears out. I think brass is correct for up to about 1913 but can be used for all years.

They look like king pin bushings for a later model car.
