    alright the ones i found were at an offroad shop in houston. they do just about anything u need i walked in and there were about four jeeps getting v-8 swaps i might buy a tranny or t-case from them. i cant remeber how much he said he wanted but i dont think it was 15$ a piece these were in good shape no rust but it wasnt around 15$ thats why i didnt buy them. white-ryhno do you have any pics of you rear shackle sitting at ride height? how long are ur shackle too by the way?
