OK need some input folks.
Got an older car with Chrysler leafs. Should I switch to the Aluminum Plate Shackles, with the multiple holes, or stick with the stock Chyrlser offset Shackels? Was wondering which are better or if there was any advatage to either.
Thanks for all your input.

about 6 years ago i ran monoleafs on a mod. I used shackles at first and then noticed the latest and greatest item (slider boxes). so much for all the hype, I thought the car felt bound up with the boxes. I think the shackles allow the rear to work more, just my opinion. Got a new car before I could prove my theory.

Ok keep the shackels. But which are better. The stock offset ones or the aftermarket multihole ladder type??

Thanks again

aftermarket multi hole type is what you want. Just remember to use lock nuts and make sure the shackles move freely on chassis and spring eyelet.
