Replace them with the OEM 2008+ shackles. They are made using a solid tube instead of rolled metal and have a back plate welded to them.

I don't go "chicken little" around here, BUT after seeing the earlier shackle designs, if I'm carrying anything in the bed or towing I'd do something about them immediately...
