    Did a search found nothing. I am thinking of getting new rear stock shackles. I called the dealership he could not find a listing for them. Anybody know where to get them, part #. Thanks for any help! Ryan

    P.S. If not any ideas on how to make my own??

    Just go get a set from the wrecking yard and put new bushings in them.

    GM sells them with the bushings and theyre pretty cheap. I think I was told something like $20 for the pair.

    14022597 Is the part number in my parts catalog. That may be an old number but it will get you started. I can't belive a dealer counterman cant find that part nor can ask another counter guy for a hand. Unreal. I'm off work today so I pop in here for a look, and in less than thirty seconds I'm typing the number. Either I'm that good or that counter person sucks real bad....

    Thanks for the part# I will try that tomarrow. Not sure what I am gonna do I have to cut the bolts out of the ones I have to get everything apart not sure if it will end up killing the ones I have, I'm replacing the rear mounts finally they are almost gone when I do I'm building a rear shackle flip bracket and a home made zero rate plus 2" springs to replace my 6" block and match my 8" fronts. Hope it works flip=5, spring=2, zero rate=1, =8 I hope. Thanks for the responses.

    if you can get the ones for Gm with bushings for $20 then go that route.
