I took a look at the rear shackle....It's not welded. I will post pics when I download them. The reason I started the post is I thought they didn't move. There is no evidence of the rear shackle changing position, ever. No wear marks, nothing. I thought it was a rigid system. I'll still post the pics and let you guys take a gander.
the shackle pivots on a bushing so there will be no wear marks on the frame. although you cannot see it moving when you hit bumps and such it is moving otherwise your ride would be so harsh it would be insane. everyone makes mistakes. that's why were all here is to help.
