    Hey all,

    So I have a set of Toytech 1" lift shackles on my '04 TRD 4x4. I just put them on last weekend, along with all new urethane bushings on all 4 corners (and 5100's).

    I was thinking of replacing the bolts with greasable ones (all 3 bolts on each leaf).

    1st, what are your thoughts on them (are they weaker, etc...?). Is it worth it, etc...?

    2nd, can you recommend a place to get them? All I can find are shackles WITH the geasable bolts, not just the bolts, or bolts that aren't specific to the Taco.


    Thanks!

    I have the OME greasable shakles and I havent had any issues with them, but I also never had any issues with stock non-greasable bolts either.

    I have the OME greasable shackles and have had no issues. I also purchased the greaseable spring eye bolt from Wheelers Off Road, although not installed yet.
