If you didn't make it, and it ain't broke, you didn't try hard enough.

You can see the shackles on allpros website, I don't have the aluminum spacers that go between the shackles and the springs and they don't have the logo on them.

Why would you bend them?  I have bent the ones on my big truck but I have built other sets without bending them just use flat bar and spacers.  If I remember right you need to space them apart 5/8th's per side.

Ill have to get pics of it, but when I did the shakles on the blue truck I used two big flat washers and two smaller ones.  The purpose was to make a kind of "rock roller" effect instead of getting caught up on the shakles.
