My stash only has one unworn rear shackle, so I need one more for Betsy that measures a full 9/16 inch diameter on both arms.

I could buy reproduction, but they have a note that describes them as "for show cars", which makes me wonder about their durability over the long term.

Please PM me or reply here if you have one original unworn rear shackle that you would be willing to part with, thanks!

The Model A Ford rear shackles fit if a spacer bar is used. I have some of those spacer bars stashed away. I would have to hunt them up. Royce Peterson Sr sold them and I bought the bars from him when he moved to Dallas.

Thanks Darel, I'll keep you in mind if I can't find a good original. :-)

Mark, I think the note about 'show quality'is made to differentiate between the three piece, riveted style, cheap, junky ones and others made properly. They actually look correct.

I could be wrong.
