Shackles from 4wheelparts?

Has anybody ever bought shackles from 4wheelparts? What's their quality? Opinions?

I think these are the ones: http://www.4wheelparts.com/PDT43726.aspx

that part number is for a performance accesories part, i.e. the people who make the body lifts. they are starting to venture into other fields now. should work just fine.

for the price of those, why not get the Bell Tech 6400's? the Bell Tech's are cheaper:

bad service on multiple occations, taking forever to get orders, getting wrong parts, paying for expadited shipping and getting it a couple weeks later.......i could go on.....i have only ordered from them 3 times......i will pay extra to get parts from somewhere else before looking at buying from them.....

for instance, when i bought my body lift, body lift bushings, and new wheel/tire combo from them last spring, i ordered the stuff on Saturday so I could have the stuff by the following weekend.....I was told everything was in stock.....I paid for expadited shipping on the body lift and body bushings because i could run my old tire/wheel combo until the new ones came in.......I called them on Thursday morning because i hadn't got my stuff yet (it was suspose to be shipping from GA).....they told me the bushings were on back order and they were waiting on them to ship the body lift.......would have been nice if they would have told me that when i ordered them so i could have gotten them from Summit......luckly there is a store in Louisville (Louisville 4wd) that had 1 PA body lift for a Ranger in stock.....

I am not getting these shackles, no need to respond anymore. They haven't been made/ released yet. I'll get 'em from Summit.
