    Here is a photo of the offset shackles I am working on right now. Still need to do some grinding and painting. I took photos of the every step of the build process, if you'd like more. I might do a writeup after it is all said and done, but I don't think many folks will be needing an offset shackle like I needed. Mine are extended 3/4" over stock, I think. I used 3/8" x 2" flat bar for the sides and 1"x2" rectangle for the center brace. I can't wait to get all the bushings I need so I can complete the install of my D70U.
