My '74 620 needs a couple of the leaf springs shackle bushings.      I have heard that bushings from a D21 work for the 620.    Does anyone know where to source rubber 620 bushings?  

This truck is in pretty good shape overall.  I'm replacing fuel lines and various crusty looking items.  Its a fun little truck.

Energy suspension make all sorts of universal bushings.  I spoke with their tech guy, call and give them the dimensions and they should be able to fix you right up.  Order me a set too please.

I've seen them on Ebay before. I figured you could find new replacements still being sold.

Miparts is from China.   The Advanced Auto Parts site shows that they have Rare Parts
leaf springs bushings but the description does not say whether their three listings for spring bushings are for the front eye or for the shackles. I'll go to the store and see.

Hey all, I just registered to share that MOOG makes as part:

moog-k201107

They only list it for '78 and '79 620s, but afaik there's no difference between the model years for this part.

Rockauto sells them for 9 bucks each. Just ordered a set for my '72 620, hopefully they fit.
