i made my own ones up today they look and work great! i used a piece of steel 75mmx10 and then made the peice of steel 100mm longer than the original shackles. it took about 5 hours all up and all you need is a angle grinder, a drill and some other basic tools eg ratchet and hammers and files. if you jack the back up just under the towbar untill the wheels are almost off the ground and then undo the bolts on the old shackles and remove them.bang out the bolts by putting a socket or somthing under the pressed side and a couple of good taps with a hammer and they come straight out. when making the new ones the you need to put a 7.5mm bend in the bits of steel. the gap between the shackles at the top is 80mm and 65mm at the bottom. it is a mod well worth doing and is pretty easy. if you need any more help just ask and i would be happy to try answer your questions!

i would do them for you if i had time but the other problem is the huge cost of shipping them across the ditch, your best option would be to get a local metal working/engineering place for you, if you take off your original shackles they would probabaly even extend them for you.

If you see this I bet people could benefit from a pic of the longer shackles you made John ( I rocked em & they were great)
Here\'s the only pick I could find of them its a side view but it shows the size difference.
