Global West bushing/shackle kit

Used equipment, but in good shape. All the pieces are there, including the instruction sheet.
Leaf springs are provided. I custom built them in the 90's. They are a traction control type design and
follow the way Global has their springs built, but they are 4 leaf. They are probably in the 160-170
pound per inch range as far as spring rate. They were on my '68 but I think they'd be right on the edge
for 65-68 and would be more at home on a 69/70. Ride height was right at 24 3/8" from the ground to
the 1/4 panel wheel opening arch.

I'm not shipping this stuff. No how, no way. Don't even ask.
I'm in Southern California, over by San Bernardino.
$50 (whole kit & kaboodle is easily $500-600 new)

Probably to late ,But a better way to measure that would be from the center of the axle to the wheel arch.That way it takes the guess work out of figuring out the tire size that was used.
Sorry not in the market or location for spring Good luck with your sale

I'd love to have just the bushings and shackles.

Yeah, that's the one thing I "forgot" to put in was tire size. Actually tire size was in
both previous iterations of my ad. In both of those attempts to publish it, the computer
froze as I was attaching the photo. That caused me to re-type the text of the ad three
times. I was not pleased..... (and this was on a virus-free company laptop)

Tire size is 225/50/16.

I'll bet. I'm not removing the bushings in the springs to facilitate that though.
If I can't find someone local to take the stuff, it's going in the dumpster.

If it comes to that, at least send the shackles to Bill or me. We'll pay for shipping plus what you think they're worth and it wouldn't be hard to throw them in a USPS flat rate box. I've already got bushings and I hate to see good parts thrown away.
