Default Rusted out core support

So my radiator core support is badly rusted out, more so on the battery side. I see this to be common as all of the junk yard trucks have the same issue, which is what got me looking at mine.

Any sources to find a quality replacement ?

lmctruck.com , but I've heard that they have some customer service issues, and are pretty high priced.

^^^ what he said, and some of their parts are made overseas and not one of their body parts are CAPA certified. Try you might get a deal there or National Parts Depot. They're prices are close to the same as LMC but better Quality.

I agree with Joey! I was gonna say he same exact thing but he beat me to it. While your at it.....use some rubberized undercoating before you put it on to keep future rust off. If you dont want to do that.....def use some rustoleum paint and a good top coat.

Common on any obs truck in the rust belt. If it's a gas truck the LMC or other resto place will have one, diesel you will need to find one in a yard. I would personally find someone to get you one from the south or try ebay. Paint it with something anti rust before installation.

Well it's been a while but I finally got R done, I bought mine from LMC truck, It wound up being the cheapest with the freight charge, about 275.00, I tore into it and it was way worse than I thought it would be, I did have have to weld in a patch for the mount on the passenger side, It was shot. I bought a set of poly bushings while I was at it I figured, what a bear those cab mounts are, I fabbed a puller at work and drank much beer on the drivers side rear cab corner. Now that it's done I find I need to shim up my bed about an 1/8 inch to restore the body line. On to the Belltech stuff now, weather is great for the moment so onward !!!!

Any generic parts outfit will have them way cheap than most posted here . I have replaced several over years . My current one has been on for 6 year no rust just under coated and spray oil in those cant reach places every year .I get mine from local wrecking yard or through body shop . I have luck to have raybuck.com in my back yard . Look around and save shipping . My 1 local supplier has 2 sitting right now .

As for used if not from Texas like state probably be same. Soak those mount bolts several times a week for couple week first they take longest to get out.

HA! HA! I'm a supporting member and you're not!
