    I installed two of these after one of my originals rusted through (the other wasn't far befind). The included bushing is nice, but if your existing one is in good shape, leave it, it's not worth the hassle if your vehicle has limited space to get tools up in to do the swap like my E-150 did.

        These shackles were very easy to install . The factory shackles had rusted into and fell . I felt that the springs were broken until I checked them.

            First the starboard side hanger and shackle went; almost completely rusted away. I spent several hours on my back in the summer heat grinding off and driving out the rivets. Installation took almost no time. Eighteen months later the port side let go, I was able to use a friends garage, rack and air tools; done and back on the road in an hour. Parts fit just fine.

                  All parts included, just make sure you also get the bracket that attaches to the frame as that is what rusted out on mine. The bolts are the kind that can only be used once, so make sure to have that parts in the right position when you tighten things up. If you try to take them off they will destroy the threads and be unusable.

                    Comments about Dorman - OE Solutions Leaf Spring Shackle Kit:

                    Both leaf spring shackles were completely torn apart on my rear end. I bought these to replace them. They were a perfect fit. All bolts and nuts were included along with the leaf spring bushing. I replaced the shackle mounts at the same time as there is no way to access the upper shackle bolt head and had to remove the OEM mounts anyway. They appear to be strong. I have had these installed for just over one year and they are still in perfect condition. I just had an alignment done after having new tires installed and it only took them a couple of minutes, so these must not have affected the alignment. I would buy these again if the need arose.

                        A:

                        O.E. = "Original Equipment", and due to overuse of the abbreviation, can mean several different things these days. Traditionally, it referred to an original Ford, GM, Chrysler, etc. part OR the part without the big name, but was made by the same exact supplier. Nowadays, it's use is a bit more general, but does imply that it will be an exact replacement, and is made to the same quality standards - this however is debatable.
