60mm Outback Shackle Kit suit Al-ko Off-Road Springs
60mm outback shackle kit is suitable for all 60mm Outback, Off-road and standard tandem caravan springs.
Self-lubrication is a feature of nylon bushes; however, this bush type is high wearing when used in offroad installations. Steel bushing is preferred for use in outback spring installations.
- 5/8″ Greasable Bolts
- 32mm Wide Shackle Plates
- 75mm hole Centers
Shackle bolt spin causes premature wear and failure. Bolt heads are welded to the shackle plate to help prevent the bolt from spinning.
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 back 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.
