    I was wondering if axle perches are available from the dealer or do most of you make your own? I replaced my busted shim block tonite and found out why it broke, the perch is very worn out. Bent and rusty they are actually not flat anymore. So, I guess I am going to be replacing them in the spring.

    Thx

    Mike

    I saw some at 4WP when I was there a week ago. You can also make your own out of square tubing (stronger and you can add some lift if you want).

    I can set you up with a set of heavy duty perches for $40.00 a pair.

    Hmmm back to the original problem. By the time a set of $40.00 axle perches get here to Canada, they have cost me dang near 120.00. Sorry Steve F. but I gotta find some closer to home. I was kinda hopin GM can stock em for a reasonable price.

    Why not make a set? With a 3" hole saw, a drill, a saw, and a welder, you'd be able to make some up in an hour, for just a couple bucks!

    They are available at most 4x4 shops and some shops offer to make stronger ones if you require, I inquired about this recently and was told about $75 installed at a spring shop.
