Where can I get a Shop Manual?

Does anyone know where I can get my hands on a shop manual for my 83 Ford Ranger. NOT the "FORD TRUCKS & SUVS Full-Size Ford Trucks and SUVs 1976-2000" or "FORD RANGER/BRONCO II 1983-90" Total /Car Care book from Chilton. These do not go in to very high detail.

The reason I want this is to know what bushing and other suspension parts I need to replace. I know most of the bushing need to be replaced so I just want to do them all before I do my v8 swap. So I am trying get a list of parts needed. So if some one could help on that it would be nice.

Also, for a manual with a great deal of detail, investigate a Haynes manual. They are superb!!
Since it is an 83 Ranger, you actually may be able to talk a local Ford dealer's shop or parts manager out of a set. The Ford manuals--published by Helm--are several volumes and they are LOADED with data and illustrations and specs. But, of course, to a dealer, 1983 is old...
