Questions: How tight should the greasable shackle "bolts" be tightened?
Question By: Gary L Carlson on Apr 2 2021 3:30 PM
Head of the bushing should be snug against the frame bracket and the bushing in the spring eye is 1/32" away from the spring as measured from the inside of the hex head to the spring.

Questions: I only need the rubber grease retaining cups for the shackles. The steel is still good. Is there a way to only purchase the rubber cups? I hate to waste the resources for the entire assembly. All the rubber is probably seventy some years old and is falling apart.

BECAUSE THREADS IN BOTH BUSHINGS ARE RH THREAD TO TIGHTEN AND REMOVE. THANKS DONNIE

Questions: On my CJ3A the left front and right rear Shackle has one LH and one RH bushing. The kits seem to indicate all RH bushings but the manual indicates once a LH shackle bushing has been installed it is very difficult to replace with a RH thread. Do you have kits to allow for this original configuration?
Question By: Anonymous on Jul 30 2014 12:00 AM
802061 has the LH & RH threaded bushings.

Question By: Tom on Jun 24 2013 12:00 AM
Alot of people do this and go to the RH threaded.

Questions: The leaf spring shackles appear to be threaded on outside, does that mean that the inside of the leaf spring where the shackle goes through is threaded also?
Question By: Anonymous on Jan 6 2012 12:00 AM
The shackle actually bites into the metal so people often think the springs are actually threaded.
