I got the shackles cut out for the rear springs, but I need to cut them out for the front also, and I need the
spacers for the shackle in the front since the tube is wider in the frame. What should I use for the spacers?

Cardboard, styrafoam, Washers, or a brass bushing. Very Happy

Good idea. Sounds like you got it all figured out.




You can call trail gear, or marlin and get them to send you the bushings or you can make your own (spacer) from washers. You can even find a bushing that's near size and use it. I know it seemed smartassness but there was actually some good in my post. Razz
