RC has extended rear shackles and I'd like to revert to stock length and look. Anyone have a pair that they could part with? Might even trade the extended ones for OEM.
Thanks

I have some OEM length shackles for my 60 that may work for you. I got them to try and solve my death wobble issues. When they weren't the issue I pulled them off. they are greasy but practically new.

Not sure if the pin diameter and shackle width is what you need though. I can measure the dims and report back if you are interested.

I know for sure I've got the stock ones from my 60....I wanna say I've got'em for the 40, too. I need to dig them out of the POD from the recent move.

I think the 60 springs are a bit wider than stock 40 springs.

60 series have a thicker pin diameter than the pre 7/80 pins. Not sure about the shackle width. I need the early ones but thanks.

It appears that 40 series shackles up to 8/80 are the same length front and rear so all I need is a pair of either. Somebody has to have some laying around.

I have several sets. Shoot me a pm. I will be around all weekend and most evenings. I might be able to meet you part way while I am running errands.

Any of the sets should work great so bring the cleanest pair you have! :D I'll be home whenever you can drop by Dave, just pm me with an idea of when that may be. :bowdown:
