Hey, New to forum - Wondered if anybody knows a vendor that carries shackles for the rear leaf springs ? Looking for a moderate increase.
Would I have to do add a leaves for say 1.5 " lift ?
I have a Gibson exhaust that exits very near the left rear shackle and an
extra long length shackle may cause a rattle or a firm hit on the exhaust when the suspension cycles up or down. The truck has Rancho RS5000 series shocks
and I plan to adjust the Torsion bars up in the front as well.
My wheels have a wider offset than the stock wheels . So I gained about 4"
of driveline width overall. This has caused the front suspension to sag a little
and bottom somewhat easily. I looked under the truck and only have about
1.5" of travel before it hits the upper bump stop.

Any help in regards to this mod would be great !

thanks

jake

Thanks for the link - I take it the Rear end on the 2 WD is exactly the same as the 4 WD ? Just the additional Transfer case and front end components ?

I did see some stuff listed for 4 wd on another site but it said it would not fit 2wd crewcab ....

It's not the exhaust - Because all 3.3 models had the same stock L S exit.

How much are those blue shackles ? A pair ?

the CCs are all the same suspension wise.

those shackles are like $60, I would personally sit down and really plan where you want your truck to be in 2 years not just now so your not speeding money on parts your just going to replace later.

Awesome, Now those are exactly what I was looking for. The adjustable shackles are the way to go. I will be looking forward to the install...
