60mm Outback Greaseable Shackle Kit suit Al-ko Off-Road Springs
60mm outback greaseable shackle kit is suitable for all 60mm Outback, Off-road and standard tandem caravan spring suspensions.
Self-lubrication is a feature of nylon bushes; however, this bush type is high wearing when used in offroad installations. Steel, the high-tensile bushing, is used in outback spring installations.
Shackle bolts and plates are plated via an ElectroGal process to add anti-corrosive properties. Spot welded shackle bolts help prevent the bolt from spinning in the shackle plate.
If the knurl connection between the bolt and plate is broken, replace the entire kit.
Outback Kit Specifications
Shackle bolt spin causes premature wear and failure.
Use greaseable bolts when inserting them into a steel bush. The movement of steel on steel causes excessive wear. As a result, grease the shackle bolts.
Spring hangers should be 35mm longer than the length of the off-road spring for best operation. In other words, add 35mm to the spring length of 841mm.
If the distance between your front and rear hanger is less than 875, your springs will not work effectively.
For example, when looking at your shackle plate, the plate should be pointing towards 7 o'clock. If this distance is more, then measure your shackle hangers.
