    I have Bilstein 5100’s all the way around on my 2017 SR5 Crewmax. To finish it off, I want .75” of rear lift. Coachbuilder has shackles for $285 but my budget won’t cover those right now.

    Any other more cost effective good options out there?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    They have been on my truck for about 30k miles with no problems. However, I don't know much about the quality compared to other options out there. Each side of the shackle is a single plate instead of a 1-piece or welded shackle that other companies offer. I don't know how that would affect ride quality, other members on here may know better than I. They came with my suspension kit and I saw no reason to change them out at the time.

    Bunch of options on Ebay in $100 range, should be just fine. I would get 1" for when the springs start to soften.

    Does anybody know if these TC shackles can be installed with my TRD rear sway bar installed or does the sway bar need to be removed to get these shackles on?

    You’ll need to disconnect the end links during the install.

    I will probably attempt to install my shackles tomorrow night after work.

    Do I need to apply any grease to the bolts...to reduce binding?

    Any tips for a first-timer? I do have a factory TRD rear sway bar installed...
