Back when I had a shackle only for a week...


I would suggest ANY name brand, belltech, DJM, Eibach.... Just get the ones that come with a shim. You might need a shim to get rid of driveline vibrations, you might not need it, but using it regardless wont hurt it. Simple to install, hardest part is getting the truck high up in the air enough to let the suspension droop.

There is a vendor on here, go to this thread and tell him you want a shackle, he haas the absolute best prices.

There are some shackles that will hit the bottom of your bed on bumps, I don't know which brand but I drove a new Tremor at my local dealership with a 2" rear shackle drop that did that on any small dip.

I don't think there would be any issues with shackle hitting the bed with a 2/4 or 3/5 drop, only with the 2" rear drop.

Also the shackle hitting the bed can be fixed by just bending up the pinch weld on the bottom of the bed.

I might be a little late to help you out but I'll throw this out there for you.

Here's my 13 when I first got it home



DJM shackels. I love them. Has just a tiny vibration at around 15MPH with 2 deg shims but it clears up no big deal. The ride didn"t change at all and hasn't affected the way I use the truck.
