    Not the forum for this post... mods generally dont take kindly to cross posting in the wrong forum.

    You don’t need 50 posts to search the buy/sell/trade forum. Then pm the seller.

    Searched a few with no luck. Just putting out there that I am looking for a part. Was not able to post in the buy/sell forum. If you have input on where I can find a part cool, if not I do not see a reason to get involved lol.

    It's either I get involved and politely mention this isn't the right forum to post in, or a moderator gets involved and shuts you down entirely. Your choice I guess...

    This isn't craigslist. i.e. the primary reason for this forum is not for people to sell stuff, it's to share ideas. That's why there's a 50 post minimum to post there, and buy/sell/wtb posts are verboten in other forums.

    Rules posted here in case you forgot:

    He's actually trying to help you out brotha.

    You couldn't post in buy/sell/trade for a reason... you don't have 50 posts... going around the rules to another section will get you shut down.

    If you're looking for the part, you can ask if anyone knows where to get it. But asking if anyone is willing to ship to your zip is pretty much blatantly going around the Buy/sell/trade rules.

    LMAO... didn't even look to see if they were in stock. My bad... that was a dick move.









    And... I run adjustable shackles :anonymous:

    Not because I couldn't decide on what lift I want... but because I had over 50 posts, they were listed in the Buy/Sell/Trade section for 50 bucks, and the shackles are WAY beefier than the stock shackles.


    And... greasable bolts are for sissys... trail rigs are supposed to squeak. I want my shit squeaking where you can here me on the next trail over. :duel:

    I think mine cost like $50-60 new. And mine aren't greasable either, so I guess I'm not a sissy.

    Is it okay if my rig just rattles? It doesn't really squeak much.

    I do wonder how some people get their suspension to squeak so much... Some coil sprung jeeps are squeaky as hell, and I'm like wtf?

    Oh buddy I get the rules. But when I make an account here to find parts and it says I am limited yeah imma go around it to see if the community has what I need. I can change my initial post to make it look less "salesish" Haha

    For what it's worth... I've had zero problems with them.

    They are WAY, seriously, beefier than the stock shackles. Not only the plates, but also the bolts. I'm running mine on the lowest setting, which I believe gave me .5~.75 inch of lift.

    oh sweet. my rear is about an inch lower than the front. Trying to even it out haha. I was curious if they would be beefier or not. Cool thing they are! Thanks!

    If you made an account just to buy/sell stuff, this honestly isn't the forum for you. The marketplace section is really more of an afterthought - and added bonus to members, not the primary function of the forum, and the rules intend to keep it that way.

    I hope you continue to contribute to the forum. 50 posts isn't hard at all, you're already half way there. Just post some pics of your truck, list out some mods you've done or are planning to do. Cruise the 1st gen sections and answer some questions that you may have some knowledge of. You'll get to 50 in no time.
