    Wanted to get some input in what everyone thought about some Custom Rear shackles before i went any further. I currently own a tundra and I am on the TundraTalk forums that a guy makes custom shackles. I was at a recent TacomaWorld meet where they were talking about how no one makes shackles for tacomas. Well this guy im talking to would be willing to create a custom heavy duty shackle for tacomas if there is a great enough need for them. He produces them in a semi mass quanity. Let me hear some feed back. Almost everyone on our website if they upgrade suspension they use his shackles. He would have to take some time to make ones that fit but could definately do it without real hassle.

    the rear shackles on a tacoma are upside-down. the leafs are bolted in on top and the mount is on the bottom. you need to do a shackle flip before you would put different shackles on.

    yeah they wouldnt work on a 2nd gen. the shackles are upside down so youd be lowering your truck instead of lifting it

    Im sure he could cook up something I wasnt meaning those exact shackles was just showing you a picture he makes them custom. So would make them to the tacoma fit.

    as long as theyre the same dimensions as the stock shackle id imagine they would work. ive been lookin for a greasable shackle bolt for all 3 bolts on each side. have yet to find someone who makes em. i know where to get greasable bolts, but dunno if theyre the same size.
