So I'm pretty much finished restoring my 87 G20. Just little things now like grill, rims, etc. Now I'm restoring a 69 GMC 3/4 ton pick up truck and it seems like the suspension is the same. Can anybody confirm this?? If this is the case, I can buy truck parts easily since for some reason the van suspension section is small. Stuff like springs, drop spindles, shackles, the likes. Thanks.

The front suspension is the same and can be interchanged. The rear suspension is based on 73-87 C10/20/30 trucks design but shackles may not direct fit since you're working with unibody vs full frame. Whats your goal with it?
