Rear leafsping Shackles

Post by ArtVanDelay on Mon Jun 23, 2014 3:57 pm

Does anybody know what size rear shackles and bushings I need for my 1st generation Chevy? Beyond that if anybody knows a good online source or them that would be good info too.

Thanks for the info!
I ordered mine by application from a local parts store. The forward bushings came correct but the rubber bushings came 1" in dia. rather than 1&1/8". just ordered the hb930 should fix me up with a little trimming.

I got the metal cartridge style. They are installed just waiting on the rear bushings.

O'Reilly's auto parts got them for me. Came from Rare Parts Inc., Stockton, Ca.. they where about $43 each, part # 35214. They have a web sight and show these by application. They also show the rear bushings but they where only 1" in dia. They are a little pricey, the rears where $6 each. Found those at the place you showed for like $8 for a set of 4. I am sure the fronts are cheaper there also, I haven't looked. I had the pricey ones in my hands and needed to get my van back on the ground, so I used 2 of the front sleeves.
