For Sale: front set of U used original shackles - set #1 - SOLD!

Post by Walt Wise » Tue Aug 25, 2020 7:48 am

I have a front set of used original Ford script U shackles with Ford script plates and castle nuts that I removed from my Coupe I bought a couple of months ago that I replaced with the correct year shackle. In my opinion, they have no significant wear, so along with new bushings in your perches and springs, they should last your lifetime! I attached two pics to hopefully show you their condition. I am asking $43($35 for complete shackles, $8 shipping) that includes shipping to any of the lower 48 contiguous US states only. I prefer Paypal using the friends and family option and not using a credit card(since I won’t get the full $43) or a check will work too. I will provide my email address if the Paypal route is used or my mailing address if using a check. Much Thanks in advance for looking!!! Walt Wise

These are some really nice original Ford script shackles in my opinion, except for one pitted castle nut as shown in the pics, so back to the top!

They sure look good to me! Well, if nobody else wants them, I will take them! Sending you a PM with my info.

I have found that lightly used shackles often fit perfectly in new, un-reamed or only lightly clearanced bushings, whereas new shackles always require that the bushings be fully reamed. :)
