Looking for some 1.25" lift shackles. Which ones do you guys recommend? Downey, Daystar, Cornfed, others?

Shackles are basically just shackles, but I know some of them are greasable and/or use poly bushings. Just looking for opinions.

IBgetwhateverischeapest. :D

I'm looking for some 2" lift shackles and I have decided to get the Downey Rubicon shackles. They are cheap and they will allow a little more flex than all the others shackles that have the gusset in the middle.

any of those are fine. shackles are pretty lo-tech.

That guesst will generally keep the bolts from sheering. I recomend you stick to shackles that have a cross piece unless you intend them for an off road only truck.

Yeah, I did some more research last night, and kindof came up with that same conclusion. Leaning toward the Downey HDs for price right now...
