Our extended shackle is designed around using Deaver leaf springs but can also be used with stock springs. We’ve updated the design to a fully boxed/sealed version so they don’t have the dimple dies.
These are longer length than the stock shackles and allow for maximum wheel travel. Using polyurethane bushings keeps them from deflecting under articulation like the stock ones and also allows them to pivot smoother and unrestricted.
The stock shackles are too short and limit droop. These are 1″ longer on the Chevy Silverado and 1.5″ longer on the Ranger and F-150. Since the shackles are longer, they will lower the ride height slightly compared to the stock shackles.
On Ford Rangers you will need to cut a hole in the bed for the shackle to clear or use an aftermarket drop hanger which will raise the ride height back up.
These are laser cut from 4130 chromoly, CNC formed, TIG welded and then bead blasted and powdercoated Camburg steel gray.
