    I've seen front spring rear shackles sold everywhere and I'm planning on a set of those real soon. But I'm gathering all the needed parts to do My rear suspension...Shackle flip and new rear springs with poly bushings to replace the broke ones. Does anyone carry a beefier rear shackle.

    I made my own out of 3/8's plate. I'm sure DIY has the shackles your looking for, or ORD.

    If you want beefy 3/8" plate rear shackles, look at the DIY4x shackle flips. They don't utelize the stock-style shackles like all of the other flips out there.

    Here's the setup on my truck:

    Here's the link to DIY4x's site. Kert's a great guy to deal with too.

    I'm using the ORD greasable shackles. They are great. Look here.

    You're using those in the rear of the truck with a shakle flip?
