55 F250 Spring Lock Pin

Hey guys.
When I was putting my rear springs back on, I managed to strip one of the spring lock pins. I ordered some from Mid-Fifty, but I have a couple that are longer than the ones you get from there.
Do you know where I might be able to find the longer ones? The regular ones seem too short for a couple of spots. The two on the right are ones out of the truck, the one on the left is the Mid-Fifty one.

I guess I could see if I can repair the threads....

It looks to me like the nut stripped, not the pin.

These pins are used for several things, see pic below. I suspect the shorter ones are the same as the kingpin locks, too.

Might try JobLot for these

Ross, thanks for the info. I have that book myself...my brain must have slipped a gear not to think of looking there. I will get in touch with JobLot.

I went out and measured my two pins, yep that is their length and the numbers listed in the book are correct.....I need to study that book more.

I emailed both JobLot and Mid-Fifty.
Mid Fifty already replied, they have it; Part #F2-2830
The shorter one is just part#2830

They are currently $2.50 for either part if anyone is interested.
