    stop looking, if you aren't willing to spend $20 on quality parts you need to think about what you are building. I have ORD shackles. $89 with bushings and bolts. www.offroaddesign.com definetally beefy, beefier bolts to, greasable as well.

    I think he's talking about D-shackles(clevises) for recovery purposes. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif Check out the local TSC or mom-n-pop tractor store, they usually have them. The 4WPW here sells them for 15 bones.

    My local farm store has them for $10-12 I can't remember. I use 7/8" threaded pins.

    Head on out to Callahans(off of 183, just north of 71). Call 'em first to see if they have the screw pins types, though, they usually don't...

    The local 6 points hardware store has them near me. The raiting is stamped right on them. 3/4" = 6.5T WLL <- 6.5 ton working load limit.

    I made my suspension shackles from a piece of 3/8" plate. Cost me about $12 for steel and a 1/2" drill bit.
