Length of Shackle Kit and Purpose of Tandem Axle Suspension


i am changing torsion axles to leaf springs. What determines length of shackles. Can I also use two separate axles with leaf springs not springs connected together, independent of each other


Expert Reply:

The kit you buy determines the length of the shackles. The MORryde Suspension Upgrade Kit for Tandem Axle Trailers w Correct Track item # MR98ZR has 3-1/8" shackle straps. You can do that but the two axles suspensions will be working independently of each other. The purpose of a shackle kit is so the suspension works together.
