    I haven't got around to installing them yet so I can't give you an answer if they are an exact fit. I don't know if my right front leaf is bigger either and would need the larger cartridge because the leafs are still on my parts van.
    I was told that on the HB 930 shackle bushing that you have to trim them down a little because they are to long lengthwise.

    Hope this helps.

    Do the front and rear eyes of the front springs take the same size bushing?

    I had same issue with 67 i took a old bushing to a parts store so they could try to match them the 2 piece ones they got were not a perfect match .for the one piece bushing i took the leaf spring in to a spring shop so they could match one up it matched better.

    The HB930 fit both our '68s without any modification.

    The front of the leaf spring takes a cartidge bushing that needs to be pressed in. A suspension shop can match it up for you and press them. we just did that on Rick's van a couple weeks ago.

    Any idea on the part number they used for that front bushing? The only good number in this thread for the front cartridge bushing is the one for Rare Parts. Don't wand to spend $50+ per bushing.

    We ordered the front bushings from Autozone, the ones they list for a 65 Chevy G10, they are sold as a pair and fit perfect in the 64.
