I have more zippers then a pair of cargo pants
Where can I find all three front spring bushings and the pins/bolts that go with them for a 51 Chevy 1 ton panel. According to my spring shop in St. Louis they can’t get or don’t have the front ones that have the threads in them. So I might as well find a source for all three. Thanks in advance...,joe

Th reason I posted this is rock auto has this under half ton but says 3800 also and if you check out there price on theses it may be worth getting one to see if they are the same.

That’s the rear spring pin tho the fronts are all smaller different.
FYI that rear bushing is very standard size
Much cheaper to buy it as a generic bushing
Only spend on the pin

I’ll have to say, all those numbers confuse me just a bit. Can you show me just the part number four the shackles and the pens for the front leafspring so I make sure I have the correct ones...... thanks joe
