My '77 has stock front shackles and my '83 has stock rear shackles, go figure? I just measured them for you and they're both 3 inches from center of bolt to center of bolt.

Thanks for the replies. I was wondering why my jeep was tilting a little to the left. I bought it with 5" shackles and the PO hit something and bent the front shackle. I'll be replacing these soon
