    I have a Dana 60 front end in the front of my slightly over stock '77 K5, and the problem I am having is that the dust shields around the rotors are rusting off. I know I don't really need the darn things, but I'd like to keep them. Anyone know where I can find a set of new ones?

    That axle's shot, just pull it out and I'll swap ya for a perfectly good 10 bolt...as a favor to you.

    I'd just remove them if I were you. Those dust shields restrict the airflow going to your rotors, can catch rocks or get bent up and scrape the rotors themselves.

    You should be able to get those at the dealer. I had to do the same with mine sine mine were dented and rusted a little.
