    Hey all. I got my Rock auto order today, but the front leaf spring bushing is wrong. I need a 1-1/2" diameter where the one they shipped is 2". this was listed as the correct part for my 1970 GTX w/440 and 4:10 Dana.

    Question, does anyone have the correct part number (AC Delco or Moog) for the bushings I need?

    Moog has had that number wrong for 30+ years.... They list the small bushing for small engine cars & the big bushing for big engine vehicles.... The correct part is the one listed for small blocks...

      Well this is an ACDelco part; #45G17012. Local parts store (Napa and Lordco) have nothing to offer. One said that they could get it in 4 weeks at $112 per side.

      Rock Auto lists that same p/n whether you put in a /6 satellite or a 440 GTX. Put in a 426, and they have nothing...

      Thanks guys. With the chrysler p/n 2403245 hopefully I can find what I need if shipping from national is too high. Curiously, when I put that p/n in at rock auto, it gives me Moog k200958, which shows for AMC or Dodge vans. Mind you, they don't have them in stock anyways.

        Bonus with buying from Nigel at Moparts, price is CDN funds so no surprises to my fellow Canadian out in BC !

        Nig's been at it for decades, I've known him since the late 80's. How he runs this great operation though from a mud bog is beyond me, but he does!

          Good stuff. I'll place an order tomorrow. After 2 weeks (Rock Auto may ask me to send them back during that time), I'll post the ones I got for free as they are no good to me. BTW, anyone know what application they are for?

          Hmmm, I see he has a fuel sending unit. Wonder whose it is/if it's any good?
          Does he ship stateside?

          There is not a single reproduction unit to date worth anything....

            He is reselling Right Stuff's units. What I put in the Bee. Very nice parts, but suffer the usual mid range rheostat issue of all reproductions.

              The 2 inch OD spring bushing fit most B bodies except 440, hemi, and police cars. Most people order them by the size they need, rather than application, due to 50 years of parts swapping etc.
