    And the saddles. Always the saddles.

    But I'm pretty sure OP knows this.

    Those saddles are out in the GM stealership NOS parts pipelines, but one side is getting very hard to find. Cant remember if it was left or right, but either way, absolute must haves.

    This thread has got to win the award lately for most ridiculous mix of questions and answers. I'm out

    The original saddles are hard to find but 2007+ trucks now have a better designed unit that would probably fit.

    Go back to curing cancer or whatever other threads your infinite knowledge of 30 year old truck wheel measurements are needed in.

    Take your ball.
    Go home.

    Dont shit up this thread.

    Going with a 4.10 setup from a 2500 2wd.

    Found a steel wheel builder who can build the wheel i need so the 30 year old measurements from people who no longer own these trucks are not as critical.

    For those of you interested in the build or learning more, ill do a build thread.
