Leaf Spring shackles rotted off and didnt know!!!
well took my ranger into the shop today to have my new tires mounted and not even 10mins after leaving the shop my mechanic called me back asking how the hell are you driving this thing??? low and behold he told me both of my rear leaf spring shackles were completly rotted out and broke..leaving my rear leafs hanging in the air..i couldnt feel while driving or didnt evn realise they were broke...i was told the ford rear shackles are known to rot out and need to be replaced..so sucks on my end..got a heavty bill..also gettin a new tie-rod end and new sway bar link..
- so anyone else ever have the problem of having to replace their shackles??
