Yeah that was the plan, but if the shackle didn't move I was going to weld it right up to the shackle. My other question is how am I going to have enough room to put a plate on and get the shackle around it? I was also thinking about forming a plate into a U and notching out for the shackle, so it will be supported from the bottom still.
