4x 10.9 Hi-Tensile Zinc Coated Nut
4x Zinc Coated Washers
We first designed these extended shackles in-house nearly 10 years ago. Its a design that has been ripped off several times, which is a testament to that original design.
But for 2014 we have vastly improved on the originals, not only in design but we have also managed to reduce the cost, thus passing this on to our customers.
So whats new?
On our original design they had 5 adjustment increments, whereas our new standard design has 6 increments. But also on top of that we have added a second hole at the spring end of the shackle giving you more versatility in the adjustment. This second hole enables you to fine tune the height of the rear of your Caddy better than ever before. So instead of just 5 holes set at +20 +40 +60 & +80mm You now have the option of 11 adjustments:
1. Std Height -2.5mm
2. Std Shackle height
These are our 8 hole option, which allow for even more height at the rear when needed, these give another 40mm in adjustment for a 20mm increase in height over our standard extended shackles
As with the original design, they are fully adjustable by simply utilising different bolt holes, when fitted to your Caddy, the above increments will be approximately halved, so +20mm will actually raise the Caddy by 10mm and +100mm will raise the Caddy by approx 50mm.
Supplied with Hi-Tensile Nuts, Bolts & Washers
When will you use these Shackles?
You will use these to RAISE your Caddy after an "axle flip" (axle relocated to the top of the leaf springs. Please see our other listings), an axle flip will lower the rear of the Caddy between 100 & 120mm depending on the model. In some cases this is to low and the rear will need to be raised slightly, this is when to use these adjustable shackles.
Also these are useful when using your Caddy for Drag racing! In minutes you can raise the back up to the highest setting for better weight transfer by putting more weight over the front wheels.
