Default Anyone Buy Drop Shackles Off of Ebay? (For 2013 RCSB STX)

Hi there. I'm looking to do a 2" drop shackle on my 2013 RCSB STX and see that Belltech and DJM are like $70... Ebay has vendors with very similar drop shackles that are $45. Has anyone ever bought the cheaper ones and had any issues? They all look pretty "normal" as far as wear goes... Any thoughts and opinions are appreciated.

Thanks!

I ordered some 2" drop shackles on ebay, probably the same place you are talking about. When I got them in they have 2 sets of holes, one set for 2" and one set for 3". I went ahead and dropped it 3", but it made the rear feel real loose and it pops against the seam in the bed. They are quality made and the urethane bushings were good, I just wouldn't recommend using the 3" holes.

Have you asked Tony on this site?
Great deals/ unreal advice. Helps everyone. Installs what he sells.
They might be a touch more, but will be the right part for your truck.
He's all over this section.

Not raining on eBay- he's just worth a try...
