New Spring Shackels In another attempt to firm up the steering I put some new (stiffer) shackles on the front springs. They went on easily enough but the directions specify tightening the center bolt to 75 ft/lbs. and the outside bolts to 15. The center bolt tightened down ok but when I took the outside bolts to 15 ft/lbs. the plates started to bend. So I loosened the outside bolts to something like 10 ft/lbs. We’ll see how it holds. I can’t really tell any difference in handling.
