    I'm not sure, but if you have an LMC Truck catalog, it has the illustration of the parts. Maybe that will help.

    Let us know how it went. I need to do the same to mine.

    I was going to replace mine but I don't think I am. THey aren't shot, just makes a rather annoying wistle on the drivers side going down the high way. Just another perk.

    A LOT OF PATIENCE!!! Replaced mine during the build up last year. Hands cramped for days. Get a good can of silicone spray, helps ease the seal into the tight bend radius and some 1/8" by 1/8" steel rivets. You'll have to take the whole thing apart. It's the only way to get the new seal around the pivot. Also, the straight piece is riveted in place and I laid a small bead of windshield sealant (black goop) on this piece to seal it completely.
