    Hello everyone,

    I bought my Tundra used and trying to figure out a bit of history in regards to the suspension. I have rear aftermarket shackles but I am unsure of the brand and size. The current shackles are on the middle of three settings.

    Is there a way to figure out what the current setting is and what the next slot up and down would be?

    Can I just subtract the length of an OEM shackle from the distance between the two current mounting points? If so, does anyone know the distance between the mounting points of an OEM shackle for a 2011 DC RW?

    Thanks in advance!

    Not positive but they resemble MaxTrac Suspension shackles.
