Mr. Technician,


I have had the T.S.B performed and it fixed my problem. The bottom spring pads were missing. I just noticed that one of the replacements is already missing. On another thread somewhere on this site I saw boots that actually slipped over the ends of the bottom spring. Is this a GM part? Do you know where I can find this boot/sleeve?

I only know of and can only find info in GM Service Information about the inserts and insulators that you already had done.

I have the inserts and I get a very loud thumping/rubbing/clunking noise out of the rear springs. I have to strip everything off my truck and bring it in.

What a pain.......

Hey guys mine did the same thing. I took a piece of rubber about 1/8 to 1/4 in thick and cut it to fit just like the stock ones did. I secured it with some weatherstripping glue. They are still in tact after 25,000 miles. Just some insight on what you could do to help out with your problem. Edited by: 01Duramax

Bronco,
I had the same problem on my 99 and 02, after dealing with many dealers I finally found a tech that kept all his old bullitins.
The part number you are looking for is 000 015604174. The cost is 20.70 each. Hope this helps.

Hey Pappy,


I just recently took my truck back to the dealer. I gave them a copy of the TSB. After kicking and screaming they decided to special order in the parts and install them for me. They are a different kind of pad, however they are not the big boots. They are more like the stock ones with an extra step. Basically 2 circles fastened together.


Should of they been the boot style that slips over the end of the helper spring?

Bronco,
The ones on my truck are the boots that slip over the ends of the springs, and the part number that I listed was for those type insulators. Hopefully the ones that they put on your truck will correct the problem and stay in place.
Goodluck,
Pappy
