Sell that Jeep shit and get the actual one-piece shackles. They aren't that expensive.

I own one It uses the same style shackle as a ranger and the other ones use the same style shackle as an explorer. That little shitty autozone kit isn't an oem replacement for shit its a shitty autozone kit.

I'm not talking the newer Jeeps. I'm talking much older Jeeps.

The older stock Jeep shackles were two flat pieces of steel arm. They weren't made out of Vatozone aluminum. Vatozone's garbage shackles obviously aren't OEM replacements, but they are styled after the older Jeep shackles.

Yup CJ5/CJ7/YJ's have that style shackle, just like the Explorer.

Earlier you claimed Jeeps didn't use that style of shackle. Now you're saying yes, they did.

They have a split shackle designed to fit around the frame. They do not have a shitty piece of bolt together aluminum from autozone. Those are not jeep shackles anymore than they are an explorer shackle. They are cheap crap from a cheap crap store.

Honest question. Has anyone here personally broken or seen broken shackles? If they're cheap POS that can fail, I get it. But if they're cheap and have no real chance of failing - are you really gonna ever seen them? Save the money, no?
