Original shackles?

Hello Forum......please take a look at the picture.

 

There where the leaf springs are held at the rear.......are they called shackles?

 

Are the 'shackles' original to the car? They seem elongated compared to 'normal' shackles.

I agree. They are long, aftermarket.

Those are definitely not factory shackles.

 

If you're interested, Ohio Mustang Supply has a nice set of standard shackles for a very fair price:

The Scott Drake and Eaton shackles are also very good reproductions. I have the Scott Drakes on mine, as the originals were quite rusted and not worth saving. I needed 1" longer than stock but wanted the factory look, so I went with the Scott Drake 1" extended shackles from Summit Racing.

 

Hope this helps!
