You could look in the bed of my truck out in my driveway. I've got a set I pulled off my 86 F150 4x2 SWB since I am changing the rear suspension to a 4-link. They sit there, with the leaf springs, front and rear brackets, and even the upper shock mounts. How about the bolts? You good there?
I pulled the springs, shackles, and mounts off my truck a few months ago. I put my eyes on them last night. They are solid, and only need to be cleaned up and hit with a coat of paint to look like new. The shackles are worth about 25 cents each as scrap metal which is where they are heading. Now, if I only knew someone who could use them....
Assuming there is no confusion as to the parts being talked about here....
Yes, I agree, put the part numbers into those Web sites Bill listed above and see what comes back from Ford. Even though both sites will allow you to Add to Cart, pay attention to where they say the parts are discontinued because, even if you give them money and try to buy the things, they'll send you an e-mail saying the part is no longer available. I made this mistake long ago, before FTE and before I understood what was happening.
Then, put 'em into partsvoice.com to see what NOS retailers say they have to sell.
There may be others around at various Ford dealers that don't participate in the Dealer Locator System or the PV system (or don't have old parts like this listed in them) but consider yourself lucky if you find such a dealer.
PV has been known to be wrong, too - it can sometimes take a lot of time before it's updated with current information as vendors sell things.
Bill - looking at Brad's post, my general sense is that he's referring to parts counter guys at local dealers the OP is going to, not you in particular.
Brad - am I wrong? If not, please tell us what Ford dealers have these things.
