Archive premium front frame shackle mounts for 4WD Dodge trucks and Ramcharger up to 1993, or to convert 2wd to 4x4  

Made from 1/4" ASTM A572 medium strength steel which is 30% stronger than A36/mild steel.  Tubes are DOM high strength.

Easy install without taking body parts off your truck.  Simply grind off the stock rivet heads on outside of frame, punch out the old, grind just a hair (~1/16") off top of frame hole, and bolt in your new Archive frame shackle mounts.  Install in as little as 2-3 hours.  4.5" grinder required for install. These fit without drilling out original rivet holes and NO HOLE SAW REQUIRED for the shackle tube to fit like another brand does. On my 1991 W250 and a customers 1992 W250, the factory frame shackle hole required less than 1/16" ground out from top of frame hole, it is deformed from stamping.  (I can supply a template to convert 2wd to 4x4)    

Base Kit Includes:

-Pair of LH & RH frame shackle mounts in 1/4" ASTM A572 high strength steel.  Grease zerk fitting in DOM tube.  Painted black.

-(2) 1/2", 9/16" or 5/8" Grade 8 shackle pivot bolts (select size desired, but 1/2" held your truck up for 20+ years).  

       You can also run 9/16" or 5/8" in the shackle mounts while keeping 1/2" in the spring eye (req. you drill your shackles)

-(6) 7/16" Grade 8 mounting fasteners that fit in original holes without drilling (no taking parts off your truck to fit a drill)  

-(4) high quality greasable poly bushings and (2) tough bolt sleeves with 1/8" wall thickness for frame shackle mounts

-Written instructions provided


-3/8" thick 4" shackles with 1/2 or 9/16* holes* are optional

*If you choose 9/16" or 5/8" shackle option you will have to source your own SPRING bushings if you have springs with 1" ID spring eye & 5/8 bolt.  I can tell you where to get them.  But you will need to use a 3" wide bolt sleeve x .625 ID x .75 OD
