ebay Sanderson welding shackles

I put my leveling shackles on yesterday and I found them to be more work than I had anticipated.

I had clearance issues while getting the top bolt out on the passenger side with the exhaust in the way. I had to cut a chunk out of the "tin-foil" heat insulation to get the bolt out.

It took me about 3 hours with 4 jack stands, a 6 tone floor jack, and a small bottle jack - I'm not a novice and used to be a professional mechanic. Don't try it without the little jack as you'll need it to force the springs into the shackles.

The end result looks great and was well worth the effort. my truck was looking very "nose down" after 348,000 km. Now it looks great.

I took the truck on the freeway at high speeds and it handles better than it used to; the shackles seemed to have breathed new life into my trucks handling.

The Sanderson welding shackles look like they should be much more expensive than they are. They are WAAAAAY more robust than the stock shackles.

The install does not require new shocks or a new track bar. I have an adjustable track bar but did not need to make adjustments because my springs had sagged so much after my last adjustment.

Does anyone know of any repercussions from having cut the tinfoil heat shield that I cant think of? Should I patch it?
