    Hey guys. I need a 5/8" outer diameter BY 9/16" inner diameter BY 1.66" long shock sleeve. It's the piece that goes inside the rubber bushing at the end of the shock so the shock tabs don't crush together when you tighten down the bolt. It's the stock size for a 12B rear. So this would be included if you got a complete shock kit for a K5.

    After being d!cked around by Superlift, I'm just hoping someone has one laying around. I'll pay shipping and a few bucks for your trouble. Thanks!!

    I'll take a look in my "box-o-parts" tonight.

    I think I have a few.

    I know I have tons of those sleeves that I toss into empty coffee cans after I've installed new shocks. Let me get out the cans and measure them out to see what I have. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    i've got one pair that's 5/8" OD, and 1 5/8" long, but they are only 1/2" ID, are you sure that yours are 9/16" ID, the reason i'm asking, is that all of my chevy's took 1/2" bolts on the shocks, even my 12 bolt i had. anyway, the bottom set in the pic are the same ID, and OD, but they are 2 1/4" long, shaggy if you want these, you could just cut them down to the proper length. if either one of you are interested in them i'll take $5 shipped for each pair, that should cover postage, and gas in my beast to get to the post office/forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif. anyway, let me know if either one of you is interested.

    later,
    rick

    Hey Rick. No actually I am looking for a sleeve for the bottom of the shock in the rear. I'm sorry I didn't measure it to answer you on the offer you made the other day. I should get to the Jimmy today so I will let you know tomorrow morning. Thanks!!
