I'm looking for the jig for putting shackle tubes through the frame for a SAS on a '86-'89 4runner.
Hoping for free!
Hoping that someone has them still lying around after they did their SAS.

What's a "shackle tube"? I thought shackles (and spring pins) are mounted in U-section. Just cut the u section to the size and shape you want, drill the holes for the shackle (or spring) pin, clamp with long vice grips to tack, remove the vice grips and lay your bead.

This is what I am looking for!
The back end of the front springs are attached to a shackle!
That shackle is bolted through the frame.
To perform a SAS, you must (unless you do shackle under frame) cut a hole in the frame and weld in a tube for the bushings. The jig is made to line up the shackle holes! Hence the need for a jig (or at least to make the work easier).

*shrugs* It would have been a lot easier with a jig, but you don't NEED it.

Guess I shoulda paid closer attention to the way my daughter's 85 runner is set up. I know the shackle's in the rear, but I never noticed that the pin went through the frame instead of underneath like Land Cruisers are.

BTW, I couldn't go to wherever that link was, said access denied.

Sorry Rzeppa,
I had posted a pic on my blog, but I guess it wont load.
Here is a link to the pic on the Marlin page.
