Oh, that reminds me. My shackles have the bent side plates, like the shackles on the front springs of live axle trucks, just less extreme. Marlin's shackles don't have bent side plates, but use 3/8" thick spacers on each side of the bushing. Is this alright? My initial thought was that was fine, but just throwing it out there, wondering.

"Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security. " --Albert Einstein
