    GM discontinued lower spring seat?

    So with my front shock install I decided to get all new hardware(shock mounts, bumper,dust boot,spring seat,etc.). Then I found out the Moog spring seat that was suppose to fit my shocks(bilsteins) didn't. I then called the dealership and they told me I am out if luck that the spring seat is discontinued. Has anyone heard of this? And what would be a good oem like replacement? I was thinking of getting Monroe spring seats but I am unsure that they will fit.

    I believe Autozone sells them but you'll have to order them. There's no real reason to replace the spring seat, I just pulled mine off my stock shocks and slapped them on my bilsteins.

    Thanks for the reply, the reason I am getting new seats is that my passenger side nut and shaft was so rusted you could barely tell there was a nut there. I have tried cutting to no avail. Can't cut through the shaft for some reason to get the spring seat off.
