What is the length of the shackles?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
2-3/4" center to center on the bolts in length.

Trying to determine if my front spring shackles are the cause of 0° caster on my '54 3b. I suspect that they are not stock, but need to know the on centers dimension of the bolt holes of originals. Mine are 2¾" on centers, so if they are wrong, I'll buy these as replacements. Thanks, Tom

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Please email some images of your set up and we can help out.

Is the bushing in this kit the same as bushing # 921055?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Yes, that is correct.

What width leaf spring is this for?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
1-3/4" like original.

Does this shackle increase the overall height of the jeep? If not, do you offer a taller shackle for a CJ3B?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
This is a stock shackle so it won't really give you an additional lift height on the Jeep. I don't really have a shackle that will do that. If you replace the old leaf springs it will give you about an inch to and inch and a half lift. Thanks

My 1952 M38A1 has the threaded bushings and the driver's front is completely destroyed. Will these work as a replacement for the threaded assembly?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
928764 is what you need to use on you M38A1

Is the kit number 916646 the proper one for the rear end of front spring on a 1955 CJ5?

Willys Tech:
Yes this is the proper shackle for your CJ-5

I just ordered and received leaf springs from you, the hole looks bigger where the bushing goes than my original leaf springs I'm replacing do I use the stock bushing you have?

Willys Tech:
You have to make sure to press out all bushing in the leaf springs we send you and everything will work out perfectly for you. Please call us toll free if you have any questions.

Will this fit without the rubber and metal fitting in the leaf spring opening and frame bracket opening? Or do I need those in addition to this shackle? I removed the rubber and metal fittings from the frame and springs trying to get the wrong shackle to fit.

Willys Tech:
This is a complete shackle. You dont need any other bushings other than what comes with this.
