Rear shackle bracket bolt size

Does anyone know the size of the four bolts used to mount the stock rear shackle brackets? Thanks

My stock ones were 3/8" with sleeves. My new aftermarket grease able shackles have 1/2" bolts. Drilled for grease fittings.

CJ7kid, not the shackles, the shackle brackets.


BESRK, do you know the length? Thanks

7/16-14 is correct and 1 1/4" is good for the length. Be sure to slather the bolts with a copper based anti-seize too.

If you have the factory draw bar, the rear bolt should be around 1 3/4" long.
