1960 C10 Front Torsion Bar Hardware

Does anyone know where I can find new hardware to re-install front torsion bars on my 60 C10? When I removed the front suspension today as part of my restoration project, blocks broken in half fell out when I removed the torsion bar keys.

They are not reproduced, but should be able to find them relatively easy used used on eBay, or the classifieds section on here.

Thanks!! I reached out to all of them to see what I can find.

I completely removed front suspension and steering this weekend. I had forgotten how tough front ends can be!! Or, I'm gettin' old!!

Hello KY50h, I sent you a PM (first time I have used that feature). I'm looking for 1 torsion bar adjuster set. The washers and spacers broke on one of mine when i removed them. If you prefer, I will take both. Are they clean (rust free) and in good condition? Thank you.
