Axle shackles serve a vital role of maintaining stability for vehicles equipped with leaf springs. They secure the axle in its set location on the vehicle to minimize bending type deflection, and they allow leaf springs to shift and articulate more freely. When that happens, up and down movement of the spring and axle is better controlled, and tires can maintain a better contact patch on pavement or uneven trails. Shackles can change the ride height of a vehicle by design, and the off-roading experts at DayStar have factored in everything that provides the best performance off-road and on when they created the lifting shackles for the rear of your vehicle.
Daystar starts with heavy-duty plated steel construction, and welds the center bar rigidly in place to ensure the highest level of strength and rigidity that is necessary for the shackle to do its job effectively. A durable, zinc-plated outer layer resists corrosion, and reduces axle deflection for more stable handling on and off the road. Available with the Rear Shackles is a choice of OEM-style non-greasable bolts and bushings, or greasable ones for serious off-roaders. Greasable shackle sets feature bolt heads with built in zerk nozzles designed to spread lubrication uniformly to all bushing areas. Daystar proudly manufactures all Rear Shackles in the United States, and backs them with a limited lifetime warranty against manufacturing defects.
