    /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gifThe perch that is riveted to the frame on the passenger side front of my blazer is bent. It is the piece that the front spring shackle bolts to . I called up some local yards but nobody has anything /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif. Does anyone out there have a parts truck that this piece could be salvaged off of?

    I dont know if it is the same or not. Ive never seen one go bad before. I think many moons ago my truck was in an accident with the previous owner and it was overlooked and not repaired /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif. It is bent over about 1 inch to the side ,not a major problem just have a small amount on shackle misalignment.but it is annoying me like crazy /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gifeverytime i see it.Does anyone know if it is the same?

    Too bad I'm way over in the middle of nowhere. I'd give you one or two off some frames I have.

    [/ QUOTE ]

    from the inside of the frame where its mounts
    base = 5 1/4 (front to back of baseplate)
    heigth = 1 3/4 (bottom of frame rail up)
    width = 2 3/4 (tube thing the bushing goes in) (i guess the bushing is like 3" long)
    bushing = 1 1/2 round (or so)

    these arent the most accurate measurements. kind of a pain in the but to measure. and no torch marks. this was before i got pissed that day.
