Stock shackles are 4" long center-to-center. AFAIK ORD & stock 87-91 shackles are 4.5" long (and also use 1/2" bolts insted of 7/16").

Which rear shackles?

Front-spring rear shackle or rear-spring rear shackle? /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif

Wasilla AK,
Front spring rear Shackles: there are at least 2 different lengths CB6 trucks (factory Dual shock) are a full inch longer than the "normal" shackle IIRC

Did you sneek that "rear" into the post /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif or was I being lame /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

The stuff I posted was for the front because those are the ones most people make...so I just assumed that was what you were looking for.
