Ok... I am putting new leaf springs on for my rear susp. I have the shackles out... but you know the bushing inside of the shackle? It needs to be replaced... so I bought a set of bushings and I'm trying to get out the old ones. But I can only get out the inner metal ring, and the bushing itself. There's an outter metal ring that I just CAN'T get. So is there a trick to it? And if not... is there anywhere I could buy a new 1977 Chevy 1/2 ton rear suspension shackle??? I've called all my local part stores, including dealerships, and NOBODY has it. I'd do a junkyard search... but that puts me back where I started with a need for new bushings. I'm on hold with Chevrolet right now, but I dunno if they'll have it. All I need is the shackle... not the bushing. And the shackle will work if it's anywhere between 67-87. But if you guys could tell me a few tricks how to get it out... that would be even better!
