    Have an 08 pre-runner and upon tinkering with the rear leaf springs the other day I noticed that the shackle doesn't freely move on the leaf when the bolt is torqued. How freely are the shackles suppose to move? If I have the leaf spring laying in front of me with the shackle bolted to it, should I be able to freely move it? It's pretty much impossible. New bushings needed?

    It shouldn't necessarily move freely by hand... much greater force applied from your truck.

    If you want to check that they ARE moving then go flex out the rear on a rock or a berm or something and make sure they are rotating.
