Shackle size

I will be installing the correct track system from lippert and I want to replace the shackles with heavy duty ones. Can anyone tell me what the length of the shackle is from center of bolt hole to center of bolt hole. my rig is in storage and I can't get at it, I want to have everything here when I get it out.

I installed the Mor ryde heavy duty shackles with wet bolts & they were 3 1/8", sorry don't have the part number, but money well spent.

Correct me if I'm wrong (have been before), but I thought with the Correct Track they used longer shackles since the overall install of the Correct Track raised the unit up several inches. Again, no personal experience, just thought that is what I've read.

Everything drops by 2" including the equaflex, so the shackles stay the same length.

They put correct track on mine and the coach raised and they did put different shackles on it.

Dave, do you know what the length of the shackles are they installed. Any chance you could take a picture of one side of the install.

I'm still in the hospital with my son. Tomorrow I'll take a picture and measure it for you. PM your email to me
