    Does anyone know a good place to get 3.5 x 2.5 spring perches for a 14 Bolt? Summit is a no, and various other places I have called don't have them. I suppose I could get conferr to custom make some. Chevrolet wants $26.83 apiece (not gonna happen).

    So, I am sure several of you have had to cut your perches off. Did you fab some out of 2x4 steel or something?

    I built my own....

    Here's a pic of one partially completed (still needs to be plated in, and have the offset hole drilled)

    Just used a piece of 2.5" x 2.5" box tubing and a couple smaller scraps of flat stock....
