So a while back I swapped out my leaf spring packs for a newer set.. while doing so I had both bolts in both shackles was seized up. I've pounded the hell outta them with the sledge and cannot get the bolts out. So because I was anxious and in a hurry I went to town a bought a set of these: http://www.autozone.com/autozone/accessories/Superior-Automotive-2-pcs-rear-lowering-shackle-kit/_/N-25n2?itemIdentifier=204654_0_0_

Which lowered the rear end probably almost 2 inches. The truck now rides level which was a bonus.. but pretty soon I'll be hauling firewood and will benefit from the restoration to factory height in the rear. So I'd like to trade my set for an OEM set. I don't care if they are beat up, paint chipped, half rusted, or what.. as long as the bushings are in decent shape.

An even trade is all I want.. my set has less than a thousand mile on them. Located in Mount Pleasant, MI 48858, and they are obviously still on my truck ATM.. once I receive your set I'll have them swapped out and in the return mail to you within three days.

Thanks

I have some that came off a 2011. I do believe they're the same as far as fitment.

OEM off mine were almost 4.25in between holes, 3,5In on the upper end, and 3in wide at the bushing end.

If yours measure the same and you'd be willing to trade that'd be awesome.

All I can tell you is when I do a search for drop hackles on the Autozone website it gives the same part number.
