Apparently these are no longer in production and there's no old stock available. If anyone can help please let me know.
Thanks

56executive who posts here can probably help, or Mike Dulinski who is, I think, in the service directory.

Both are seasoned, knowledgeable parts providers with excellent reputations and reasonable prices.

Spoke with Dave Schumacher earlier today - he has no stock.
A custom one-off set would cost nearly $300.

I had a local machinist make 2 sets for me out of existing fixed links several years ago. I don't recall them being anywhere that cost.

What size pins do you have in there now? How much higher do you want the car? To have them adjust is a needless complexity. Its much easier to just get the right length pins or if need be have them made. I will make you a pair of pins in any length you want for $75 plus shipping; use your own ends.

When I rebushed my Packup suspension 37,000 miles ago I increased the driver's side pin from a 2 to a 4 to level the car side to side (the original owner must have been a porker) and haven't had to think about it since.
