You can get new ones from the dealer for $85 and it comes with bushings. I got slightly used ones and I am putting energy bushings in them.

$85? where are you finding yours? I looked it was $300 per side... got a set of junks for $100 and made my own add a leaf for the price of a couple sawsall blades and drill bits (also new bushings)

Default rear leaf spring installation

I have a 99 4wd Blazer. I am putting new rear leaf springs and shocks on. I got the old ones out but I am having a problem putting the new ones on. I put the front bolt on then put the rear end of the spring to the shackle. That is looking fine. My problem is that the small nipple does not line up with the hole. So when I go to put the new u bolts on they are bent. It seems like the spring needs to be pushed in towards the center of the Blazer. Any hepl or pictures would be great. Thanks Bernie11
