WTB 4” shackles

I would like to trade or buy a four inch spring shackle for a stock four-inch spring shackle. I have a 6 inch shackles to trade for the 4 inch shackles.

Re: WTB 4” shackles

I know a few companies make a 3/4" lift shackle out there. I run the 6" ones myself which are 1.5" lift.

Re: WTB 4” shackles

Jon, I have 6 inch shackles on there now with my relocation bracket. 6 inch shackles seem to be too long, too steep in the angle so I want to get stock four-inch. Looking to see if that corrects the problem.

Re: WTB 4” shackles

I found one stock shackle in my garage. I thought I had 2 but no luck on my quick search. I'll take another looks round the garage after dinner

you might want to ditch the shackle relocation brackets and just run the 6" shackle

Just need to figure out shocks now haha. They are too long. Either move the mounts or get shorter ones.

Shorter ones might be the ticket for sure. I really don't want to drop the mount on the axle any lower. and raising them would be not something I would like to do either. I just need to get in there and measure what length of shock I need.

Re: WTB 4” shackles

I think so. I think 4” would be .75 or one inch lift. Since 5 is 1 or 1.5.
