No issues with mine. Just make sure to grind the little metal tab off the inside before you put them on. You don't want that to damage your bushing. :cheers:

Check these out. It's from a local fab shop near my house. I've used their leveling spacers before. Nice guys.

I talked to one of the owners of the shop, and he has not had any issues. It's not rolled like the 04-07 Titan shackles. They look pretty solid to me. If I would have kept my 06 Titan, I would have picked up a set of these in a heartbeat.

There are tabs on the truck that will need to be taken down. Once you pull the old shackles off the truck, you'll see what I'm talking about.

I'd like to see a larger picture and not one taken in a dark alley of those other shackles. Not that I'm doubting them, but seriously, who takes a 200x200 picture, in the dark, for advertisement? Are they trying to hide something from the consumer that they don't want us to see? Just sayin'....

No need to grind those metal tabs off any longer. Greg (PRG) redesigned them so you don't have to do this. I asked Greg specifically on this because I forgot to grind mine down. Thats when he told me I had purchased the newer design.

I wouldn't say that someone who is not proficient at photography or web design as having something to hide. Those that use computer generated renderings of their products must really have something hide.

i didnt use prg shackels, but i did install some shackles on my truck. They seemed to be a little to wide for the hanger back there, and took some coaxing to get thim seated. Again this is NOT prg hardware, and im sure his are a better fit.

when you have the old ones off, be sure to take care of that bed seam right above the shackle. you will have to bend it over or cut it off. If not the shackle will hit it, and squeak like mad.
