Archive Upgrade Shackles/Bushings - 2G-3G Tacoma/1G Tundra (Shackle Options)
Cross Tube Options for 1G Tundra Hammer Hangers® (Select Option)

Low stock


-WHAT THEY  DO: Noticeably improve ride quality and reduce rear sway.  Improve handling, durability and droop travel potential over flexible stock hangers.

-FOR Spring-Over-Axle SOA ONLY, NOT COMPATIBLE WITH SUA!  SUA conversion is a very poor choice for 1g Tundra expo rigs. 

-Compatible with EVERY SOA spring pack on the market.  

-Supports 12"+ travel with Archive Shackleton springs/aftermarket springs, with appropriate 12" shocks, see Archive Shock Relocation   

-Fits stock to fully built rigs, and does not require any other modifications to experience ride, handling, durability benefits 

-Properly align parallel to leaf springs 

-These DO NOT add lift

-These DO NOT force the leaf spring into more negative arch like shackle flips do.

(1) Right hand & (1) Left hand hanger, laser cut and CNC bent 3/8"+ 1/4" HSLA 50,000psi steel (30% stronger)plate structure, fully MIG welded.  >>>2 stage powder coat: blast, zinc base prime, semi-gloss black top coat<<<

Shackle Options:

-Reusing stock shackles (3.9") and OEM rubber bushings OK to reuse

-4.0" Archive shackles jig-built from 3/16" HSLA steel + 1/4" wall DOM tube, assembled w/ poly bushings & grease fitting.

DIY Cross Tube Option (*Requires the spare tire be relocated*):

1.  DIY your own cross tube: select (2) bolting flanges and (4) bolts.  Adding cross tube option DOES further improve ride quality (~20% of hanger improvement), by increasing frame rigidity, stopping frame from splaying out, tock cross member has some flex.

1st Gen Tundra Double Cab

I had the pleasure of running the original Archive Garage shackle flip kit on my 2004 Tundra Double Cab, I gained about 1" of lift with that kit running stock leaf springs and articulation of the rear end was unmatched at that time, I was able to fly through high speed wash board roads and crawl through bigger obstacles without issues keeping my rear axle planted since I was open diff, then Archive Garage came out with the new design hanger that they currently sell and you are viewing now, I instantly wanted them since it had all the benefits of the OG shackle flip but eliminated some of the sway I had in my rear axle, I scored a set second hand from a guy in my area who was fearful of taking on the install job for his tundra, my factory hangers were already removed so the new set bolted right in and I was able to articulate my rear axle the same as before but could travel through obstacles a little faster now and I felt safe to finally tow my 6000lbs travel trailer using this kit paired with an ICON progressive 3 leaf add on pack, the install is not for the faint of heart but it is pretty easy to do if you have the correct tools, when I did mine I removed my leaf springs completely and supported my rear diff to give me ample room to work, then using a grinder I ground off the heads of the factory rivets holding on the hangers, then I punched out the rivets through the frame and drilled out my mounting holes, clean and paint the frame with a wire wheel and steel-it spray paint, then bolt the new hanger, shackles and leafs in and your all done, took about 8hrs the first time, the hangers are super beefy made of 1/4" steel, nice welds and powder coated, the shackles are the same and there greasable, I cant complain about either set I owned as they both did everything I needed and wanted, I had a full mid travel kit on my tundra with Solo Motorsports lower and upper control arms, ICON coilovers, ICON 2.5s in the rear with there add a leaf and these Archive Garage hangers and shackles, I beat the s#@t out on my truck and it never let my down, AG is also super knowledgeable and I reached out a few times with questions and they always had the correct answers, thanks again for your support.

I had the pleasure of working with Eric of Archive Garage, who spent a considerable amount of time helping me find the perfect options for my 2004 Tundra Access Cab. Eric has first hand experience with the OG Tundra and designed the HD/MD Shackleton springs specifically around the chassis. Eric was also able to clearly articulate the benefits of buying Archive products over the competition, and more directly made a strong case for buying and installing the hammer hangers sold by AG to strengthen the rear end suspension over factory by a significant margin. The installation of both products isn't a casual DIY project, but I did manage to complete the task (hangers and HD leaf pack) in just under 8 hours. The ride quality is significantly smoother now, both with weight (1100lb truck camper) and without, which came as a pleasant surprise. I did speak with multiple competitors (Deaver, Alcan, Robinson, etc.) before making the purchase, but in the end, Eric's kindness, professionalism, and specific knowledge of the first gen Tundra far outweighed any argument to go with another company. I'm looking forward to eventually purchasing the shock relocation kit too, but for now am very pleased with everything about Archive Garage and the products I've purchased from them. If you're on the fence, just give them a call and make the purchase
