    I've got the heavy duty shackles from ORD and they are a little longer to avoid that kind of thing.

    $5 worth of 2"wide 1/4"thick flat bar with a couple holes drilled will stop that problem.
    5" on centre IIRC ~1" longer then stock

    Just go with ORD's shackles, Steven only makes good products, and provides only the best customer support. Later
