    Does anyone sell them or is this something I should look into having made?

    Thanks

    Cybrfire is a vendor here, he currently makes a couple of other size shackles but I be he could do the 7.25" easily.

    edit: He also makes the washer/spacer thingys to use the standard rear spring bushings on the front hangers.

    You can get them at your local steel retailer. They come hidden in a larger piece of steel. :D You can find them them with 2 hack saw cuts and drilling 2 holes removing what isn't a shackle. I got mine for $8 and still have 8' of 2"x3/8" left over ;)

    I can do them for you. Give me a shout and I'll get you a quote for the shackles or shackles with spacers.
