Re: Who stocks Con-Ferr shackles?
WOW, thanks for all the input guys! I did call Con-Ferr and the only ones they had were way too tall. 4 Wheel Parts Wholesalers scare me to death, and I'm waiting for responses from two others.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img]
I think I'm going to take Jeepn's advise and whip a set out on the laser. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img] I wanted to go with the store bought ones 'cause they have the welded brace in the center ( I know, I know I need a welder). But I think making my own for free, then driving the Jeep for a while to let the springs settle, then finding out what I really need to balance the height is a better idea. Thanks again!

On a construction note...Will 1/4" mild steel be thick enough? I know the stock ones are a sheet metal stamping, but this will just be a flat piece of steel with no support rib stamped into it. We don't have any 3/8" around the shop, and the 1/4" is FREE. BTW, they are only going to be a 1/2" lift (4" center to center) with a tube bolted in the center for support.
