Leaf spring interchangeability

I have a 72 gmc jimmy trying to find 1/2 ton leaf springs shackles and leaf spring frame mounts. Are the later model Silverado 1500 4x4 shortness interchangeable

Re: Leaf spring interchangeability

Not positive but I think later models are different. What are you dealing with, if you could post photo's. My 72 Blazer 2 leaf springs were nearly flat, spring shackles in front are integrated with radiator support.

Re: Leaf spring interchangeability

I am keeping my fronts to lower the truck back down in my old age. They are nearly flat even when removed.

Re: Leaf spring interchangeability

Sounds like 1 Rippen 6 has got what you need, I have complete 72 4x4 drive train from 2wd conversion, I would rather sell the whole lot together.

Re: Leaf spring interchangeability

B-50, Shackle flip, lift springs and cross over steering for stock suspension? Very very tempting considering i plan to lift mine... how do the shocks look?
