    The part number for the Steering Arm Washers is GM 3965138. They're about $13 each.

    C039166A-218D-422D-977E-1275E7C28E8F.jpeg Started to disassemble the hubs.... after going through just about every single hex wrench I own I determined that the hubs have a 7/64 hex bolts holding them on

    You can usually rent the socket from an auto parts store. I don't think it's more than $20 to buy one.

    I'm wondering if they do as well. Need some of my 82 K10.
    Where did you get all of your Axle, Hubs, Suspension parts? I wanted to stay closest to Genuine as possible.

    Summer has been so busy I haven’t been able to do as much as I would like to the K10. I finally got the front end disassembled to sand blast 9F757FC8-C859-4416-84DB-05412BCC1618.jpeg 24F99A4F-0EC9-4055-B0B7-D2078816AC95.jpeg
