    If I was going to be running adjustable shackles I would opt for the delrin bushings from PST, since they are a bit stiffer that rubber and stand up to the side flex a little better.
    Non adjustable shackles I would run poly also from PST.

    I got some new ones from rockauto.com, the lower ones seem right, but the upper ones are too big!... Can some one tell me what upper ones I need & wear to get?... As you can see in my pic I need the upper one's with metal on the outside, wear mine are rusty!

    Uh, that’s a front spring eye bushing.

    And those extended shackles are a terrible idea.

      Those rear springs do not have the stock parts and that’s what you should get with or without new springs. New shackles!
