sup y'all,

i'm goin through my suspension and changin out all the old stuff. i figure 31 years is long enuf.

already got poly bushings, looking at lift springs (probably not gonna happen now - $$$), and i've been searching the internet for some shackles.

i would like some that have ~1in of lift. nothing big, basically just a replacement for the ol nappy stock ones.

where can i find the best price? i've looked at ccot, sor, jto, and a couple other sites.


any ideas would be cool, thanks,
jonathan

Go with the greasable shackles, they kick ass. I have 2.5"(1.25" lift) greasable shackles in the rear of my 40, I baught them from TPI , pretty good prices and friendly service; I also baught my greasable spring pins from them. I'm running stock legnth greasable shackles from Spector Off Road in the front. The greasable shackles are worth the extra $$ they're easier to install and cut down on friction between the bushings and shackle.

Definatly get greasables. I'm running the anti-inversion greasables from SOR. About $170 for 4. I don't know how this compares in price to others, but they are very well made, and it seemed like a good idea when you're running 4" lift SUA springs. One less thing to worry about.

I forget what thread it was but there was a discussion about shackles and how if they are very much taller than stock you may need to shim your axle. You might look for it.

I'd check "For Sale" on this board and on POR. There is always someone doing a springover or taller springs and ashcanning the old "lift" shackles. Post in wanted and see what happens.
