Beware the 2" shackles
I have encountered yet another serious problem. The po wanted a really cheap lift so I am stuck with buck toothed 2" shackles. Upon fixing another problem (the engine falling out) I noticed that the bracket that holds the front end of the rear leaf spring was just about cracked all the way through. This was about to cause some serious damage. So now I've got a pretty crummy welding job that is not going to last very long. So my question is, could having giant shackles cause this? Or was this more of a rust issue, because my frame is pretty rusted out. And can I get new mounts or would it be better to just get a new frame all together?
It should be fine as long as it was "gently" rolled...

Not to mention the body doesn't match the frame that doesn't match the engine...

You are being vague & didn't post quality pics - so answering your solution question with a decent answer would be a guessing game at best.
Is that what you wish folks to do?
