Recommended Shackle Bolt For Escort Trailer


I have noticed that all shackle bolts are 9/16inch X 3inch long. Is there a 9/16inch bolt X 3.5inch or 9/16 X 4inch long? My old trailer has built-in hangers that are welded to the main 3X5beam. They are 2.5inch wide *outside dimension which leaves only 1/2inch to add washers and the nut. It appears that a minimum length for my old escort trailer would be 3.5inch Have you run into this before? I tried to see if 5/8would work but the tolerances seem to tight to get the 5/8inch into the 9/16inch X 1.75inch bushing in the spring ends.. 1990 or earlier bought used Escort Trailer.

The shackle bolt we offer that measures 3-1/2 inches is part # 166079.

This is a 9/16 inch diameter bolt and includes the locknut. We do not offer a shackle bolt that measures 9/16 inch x 4 inches.
