Rear spring mounts

Is it normal for the rear leaves to not have shackle mounts? On my '91 the rear springs mount into these solid brackets. (In the rear) the front mount sticks straight back as the frame curves up over the axle...the rear spring mount is is two pieces of steel plate that are bolted to the frame ans stick straight down.

sounds like that's the case....kinda confused what is meant about the front one though.

the front and rear shackles should look the same.


if the front is parallel to the ground....something is very wrong.



edit. shackles are below:

Yeah, this is what I was talking about. My point is neither shackel in the rear moves. Both are stationary. I made a drawing since I don't have a picture...but I can't load it.

Post up a real picture, I'd love to see it. It's hard to imagine someone welding the shackle to the frame, but there are stupid people out there. I'll bet the rear doesn't flex real well...

stupid question...is that even GOOD for the springs, i would thinik it would put an unbelievably large amount of stress on that "shackle" and the wrap on the spring.

yeah...it's not good.

it also limits flex.


I imagine....maybe the bolt broke, and someone just decided to weld it instead.
I don't see any benefit from welding that
