1978 Crew cab 4x4 rear suspension help needed

I'm not having any luck getting bushings for the rear suspension of my 1978 Crew cab. Wondering if anyone can lend a hand. I after Black Urethane, and have the spring/shackle ID's if needed. They are different than a non Crew cab.

All the rear springs should be the same unless for some reason you wound up with highboy springs. Those stopped being produced in 77. Measure the spring width and let us know what it is. Number dummy should be able to get you a part number then they will be easier to find.

Springs are 3" wide. Front of rear spring bushing hole ID is 1 1/2" with the bolt measuring 5/8" OD. Rear of rear spring ID is 1 1/4", with a bolt OD of 9/16". Rear upper shackle ID is 1 1/8" with the bolt ID of 9/16". These measurements are done with a measuring tape, I do not have calipers.
