Planning for next spring. From what I've read if I take calipers and measure the length of the existing bolts and the spacing of the holes on the shackle straps, that's all I need to order the right parts.


Right?

I think there are only 2 primary sizes for the shackles, 2 1/4" and 3 1/8", with 2 1/4" being the most common. You can check that by checking center of bolt to center of bolt. The center to center dimension will tell you which kit to buy.

Contact MorRyde & get their heavy shackle with wet bolt kit. It comes with 1/2" thick shackles, wet bolts & enough bronze bushings to replace all. If I recall you need the measurement from center to center of the existing shackle bolts, basically shackle length. Great kit & great customer service.
