    Used you will have to hit up the J/Y
    New you can get lowering shackles (that will lift your truck if you have a flip kit) from Summit.

    I got greasable poly bushings from ORD.

    Have fun getting the old ones out!

    How much would you give for a set of rear shackles with rubber bushings?

    HEy bro...
    Go to the local Chevrolet dealership.
    I went there and told em i had a '72 K/5 and they looked up the rear suspension, and i pointed at what i needed.
    I think the 2 were something like 40 bucks.
    It comes with both shackles with the rubber bushings already installed, and the metal sleeves already installed also.
