K10 rear shackles

Who makes stock replacement shackles for a 1985 k10? I got the Dorman 722-066 shackles and they bind really bad and the holes arenít spaced the same. Need some help. Thanks

Do you have the stock set-up in tension or did you flip them to swing

If you have the bolts tight on the serrations, they're supposed to bind. Loosen the bolts, then set the weight of the truck down then tighten, OR If you want them to pivot freely, you'll have to sand the serrations off of the edge of the bushing sleeve end and not tighten the pinch bolt all the way.

The holes were species differently and the shackle would actually bind on the hanger (was too wide) I got some for a 2012 Silverado and they fit perfectly and match up identical to the factory ones
