View Full Version : Pre 1980 FJ40 Stock Shackle Needed

03-04-2006, 07:18 PM
Subject line says it. I was in the middle of replacing the front spring pins and all 12 bushings on the front of my 1971 FJ40 and in the process of removing one of the front shackles, the inside plate broke. Better in the garage than the trail!

I thought I had saved my old ones from my 76 but can't find them. I may have given them away, I don't know. If anyone has a stock shackle for an old 40 lying around that they don't need, please let me know. All I need is the inside plate, the one with the bend in it that's supposed to protect the nut. I can come pick it up Sunday. Trade for beer or parts or ????

I have the old shackles off my 40. You are more than welcome to see if any of them will work for you.

I found some old ones - Yeah! Sometimes I hide stuff from myself. Old suspension parts in a box hidden away on a shelf with a pile of cruiser parts and an engine on a stand in front of the shelf. Too many old cruiser parts. Thanks for the offer Ian, I appreciate it. Happy cruisin'!
