Damn Rear Shackles

Well with a lil bit of Canadian rust my left rear shackle snapped about 2 months ago and had it replaced at my brothers shop.

Last Night I was a the local swimming hole , And found me self a pile of rock to flex on , As i drove up i heard an awful Creaking sound coming from the back end , And my first thought was " Aw S*** Not The Other One ".

So I got out and checked and sure enough the right rear shackle had snapped , Thank god I had ordered 2 shackles when we did the left side one.

Ill Try To Get Some Pics Up Soon , of both sides

Picture fale.

Was it the actual shackle that broke, or the hanger? Its pretty common for the hanger to rust out.
