2500 Rear Leaf Spring Shackle
« on: August 31, 2017, 12:26:21 PM »

Anyone know of any heavier duty shackle on the market.

I was under the AV and notice mine were kinda leaning LOL

I suspect the rear swaybar is acting like a Track bar limiting side to side motion and it found the leak link.

I was going to pm my 2 go to guys but I figured to may be good to post the question so everyone knows.

The rear leafs are what maintains side to side motion, maybe the bushings are worn.. Got picture?

You don't want to see that picture, it's a rusted mess. I'll post one later but the sides of it are leaning and i'm pretty sure its ready to let go.

Not pretty... #4 and #11, looks like they are available. Might be able to shop around with the part numbers..



 

Not pretty at all, if they break it will come through the floor.

Also places like LMC Truck carry those to, with a GM part number they may be able to match them.

Hey Byron,

Looks like you're missing a body bolt also in the pic.  R.

Hey R yeah I'm in the process of replacing the rusted brake lines and I had to lift the body up. I figured treat the frame rust at the same time

Sweet mother of Jesus is that thing bad, I was spraying some PB Blaster in prep to change it saturday and a big piece of rust fell off in my hand. That thing has a hole in it. So all you 2500 owner should check your rear spring shackles

Brine is the enemy of all enemies.  I'm about to try to salvage what I can of Barney's, our '01 Suzuki XL7, undercarriage and frame.  Looks a lot like that or worse even.   :'(  Good luck with your beast.

Yeah I knew I needed to replace them, but from that pic to this one in 2 years.

Man, I sure hate seeing this.

A lot of good trucks just rot away.

I'm glad to see when owners are addressing these issues.

I'm not sure I have what it takes to live in an area that causes such problems.

I have a hard enough time keeping mine in good running order without having to worry about rust all the time.

Best of luck with your repairs.
