    Went to shim my rear axel to get rid of the vibration, and the darn shackle bolt is too short! What gives? Am I going to be able to find longer bolts?

    Shakel bolt? Do you mean Ubolt? If so you can get new bolts from California Off Road right there off Kansas by Hwy99 or Kyle Off Road off Yosemite.
    Good Luck /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Actully it's the spring center bolt. To go thru the shim there isn't enough to go into the hole in the block. Tried a washer (what California four wheel said). Thinking about rewelding the bracket on the axel.
