    To night I busted the bolt on the top rear part of my front strings. The one that goes thru the frame. Does anyone know what size that bolt is? I also bent the stock brackets at the same time, does anyone have some that I can snag from them?

    No I mean the shackle it self... The two pieces that attaches the spring to the frame

    On the far right of the pic, is a set of aftermarket shackles. I just need stock to get it back on the road. [​IMG]

    i have those also. i have a set of ORD shackles and bolts (non greasable) i dont have the bushings though. they are a different size because ORD uses 1/2" bolts instead of 7/16". $35 and their yours

    i have some stock ones but they are bent a little
