So I’m having a few shackle issues with my 40 and I appreciate any input you may have regarding this situation. I got my truck a few months ago and I’m very happy with it overall. After reading several posts, steering and front brakes seem to be common issues and I’m in the process of trying to get mine debugged. I plan on (in the next few weeks) doing the mini disk conversion and I have almost all the parts. This *should* solve the majority of my straight line stopping problems—I don’t really want to fumble with my drums. In the interim, I think I’m having problems with my shackles effecting my steering. This may be a lame question, but I wanted to see if anyone has ran into this before. I just installed new HFS shackles and bushings in the front. I didn’t bother to replace the bushings at rear of the front leafs, only in the front where the shackle meets the frame and leaf…for now. When I finished, there was a gap between the edge of the shackle and the bushing causing 1/4 – 3/8” of play on both perches and on the front of the leafs. Now, when I drive with the new shackles, going down there road is like a death wish. I will be driving and its like someone takes the wheel and turns the cruiser between 1/8 – 1/4 turn. Almost as if the play in shackles is causing the axle to move back and forth. Almost like if you were to be standing over the pumpkin and took a stake and drove it from the top to the bottom then into the ground. This is the axis it seems like the axle is pivoting on. My thoughts at this point would be to get some large washers and try and omit the gaps in the shackles. I guess I just have this funny feeling doing so will only make things slightly better and I will still have the same issues... Any thoughts on this? BTW, I have my reverse high performance bezel on at the moment.
