This lowering shackle set will fit any GMC or Chevy 2500HD from 2011-2019 gas or diesel. The drop is exactly 1.4 inches in the rear.
These could be used for a 3500 as they share the same shackle but the problem is the 3500 has a set of helper springs stacked on top of the 2500 leaf pack. They have a bump stop and when you lower the rear of the truck, it reduces the gap between the helper springs and bump stops and gently rest against each other. This will not harm anything as they are designed to do so.
They will not work on the 1500 Pickup unfortunately.
They have been designed specifically for people who want to lower the rear of the truck without having to modify the pinch weld or bed seam! **These are 100% drop in, no modifications required!** Anything over 1.5" would require bending, cutting or hammering of the bed seam since it would interfere with the top of the leaf pack which could potentially create cancerous rust or structural integrity. The purpose is to allow the maximum amount of drop, and not have to make any modifications to the vehicle. It truly utilizes the full amount of space between the top of the leaf pack and the bottom of the bed. A great alternative to expensive leveling and lift kits!
As seen in the pictures, all trucks sit almost level by lowering the rear 1.4" and raising the torsion bars roughly 1". **(Please keep in mind, it is completely up to you how much you want to raise your front end, some do and some don't)** This will not effect ride quality at all and makes the truck look much better without the ridiculous rake that the factory height provides. Customers using these shackles with tires as large as 35" but anywhere from 32"-34" tires are ideal. Also if you have airbags in the rear, these will accommodate each other very nicely while towing heavy! Some modify the brackets to gain more travel of the bag which is sometimes needed.
These are made much stronger than the factory shackles and have a thicker metal material used for heavy duty use and longevity. The bushings are rubber encased and pressed in. Meaning it's a one piece, that has a rubber outside and a metal tube inside for the bolt. **Same type of rubber durometer you would find on factory.** This feature is key when maintaining a smooth ride and durability. The materials used, and bushings in these are far superior than what comes in most aftermarket shackles. That is why this shackle is considered a "premium shackle" and separates itself from the rest.
They are hand crafted and made right here in Pennsylvania!!! U.S.A.
Installation is about two hours and can be done in your driveway. A floor jack, some jack stands, and basic hand tools are required. Instructions are included!!!
