Which GreaseAble shackles with OME springs?

Have OME springs ordered. Wanting to replace shackles with new lift. I plan on running 32/11.50 with 2.5'' OME lift (36R front and back), thinking i might need 5/8 lift shackle to help. WHich grease able shackles work with OME 36R springs? thanks!!

Which shackle bushings work with ome springs. That's probably the question. Quick answer is ome bushings work with ome springs. However, some have been successful removing the metal sleeves in the spring eyes of the ome springs to accommodate a wider variety of bushing manufacturers you could use.

I have the full kit from MORE. much better flex than any other combination of shackles and bushings I've had before.

so, i did order new bushings from OME for the new 36R springs. But, when i order the MORE shackles OME is not listed as one of the spring companies to choose from....so how do i know which companies spring is closest to OME or does it matter since i ordered new bushings?? confused

just pick "Other" and then the correct size bushing. Pretty sure it's 1 1/4"

I don't recall where I ordered mine from, but I run 36R front and back and the bushings fit the springs just fine. $90/pair, how can you go wrong?
