Ok, i am going with chevy rears and toy rears for the front. What do i do to make a shackel? Just cut 2 peice of steel and drill 4 holes? What do i need for bushings? or what type/kind of bolts should i use. I want to do a dual setup on the rear. Anyone have a write up?

If your using stock shackle/hangar mounts, I suggest you use stock bushing or polys from a local 4x4 shop. If your not too confident and not sure whether they are the right ones or not, measure a friends truck and check against that. Shackles are pretty easy to fab. Have fun.

i just made mine. they are out of 1/4 or 3/8 material. i made them 2 1/2 inches longer then stock. drilled four holes. i'm using 9/16 bolts that are grade 8 and they are 5 inches long. a bunch of washers and some rubber plugs i'm gonna drill out to ust for bushings between the shackles since these are going on the front. i'll put them on after i get out of this stupid work place today! <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> <IMG SRC="smilies/usa.gif" border="0">
