Where are the parts?

I've got a 92 W250 5speed with 198k miles that i work out of every day. It's a great truck but there is a pretty good lacking in the after market for parts. I recently had a 2" soft ride kit from skyjacker (all springs) installed. The mech had a hell of a time getting all the old bolts out, and my shackle bushings took a beating (1 is pretty much gone). I have not been able to find replacements anywhere. The other thing that's driving me crazy is the 4wd linkage. the bushings are worn out and it rattles running down the road, can't find these either. Anyone have any good leads on a parts place for our trusty old rigs?

Thanks in advance!

The Tcase linkage doesn't use bushings. Its a round rod to round hole. With milage and age. I bet both are worn. Try a set of spring clips from a hurst 4 spd shifter. These spring clips do help take the rattle out.

The rear spring shackle frame mount bushing you can still get at Dodge. I bought some a while back. There are two bushings in each rear mount. They can be a pain to remove. I'll have to look and see if I have a number for them.

If you go down to a Dodge dealer before I find a number. Have them look in the frame section. It is not listed in the front suspension section.

BTW aftermarket stoped making parts for 1st gen's in early 94. There are only a couple of suppliers still making anything for 1st gen's.

Thanks, i'll give the dealer a shot, maybe the machine shop after that. I can't believe our old trucks have been forgotten about, there are so many still running around, you think someone would see the opportunity. i commute with 3 others every day, and I keep noticing more.

You must live in a nonrust belt state. They are getting hard to see in my area. I live in Indiana.
