Part Details

  • Quantity:   Pair

This leaf spring shackle repair kit PAIR are aftermarket parts that is designed to replace broken, rusted, or rotted leaf spring shackles. It includes all the necessary parts to do a professional repair.

After years of exposure to the elements, the metal on the shackles will tend to start flaking and rust away, along with the bushings deteriorating, eventually leading to shackle failure. Once this happens, the vehicle will be inoperable. This PAIR is designed to replace the damaged shackles and bring back the strength and integrity of the leaf springs again.


  • Comes as a PAIR
    • Fits both LH (Driver Side) & RH (Passenger Side)
  • Will replace only the REAR Shackles on the REAR Leaf Springs
  • Replaces dealer part numbers: F1TZ-5630A, F87Z-5776-AA, F1TZ5630A, F87Z5776AA
  • Built to strict quality control standards
  • Kit includes:
    • (2) - Shackle with Bushing
    • (2) - Spring Bushing
    • (4) - Mounting Bolts
    • (4) - Locking Nuts
  • Made to fit precisely

This PAIR has enough parts to do two leaf spring shackles. If you need to do only one side, please purchase the single kit.

This leaf spring shackle repair kit PAIR are great replacements and offers good value over dealer individual pieces.

02 Explorer Sport Leaf spring shackle
Fits like original, came with all the hardware . Very happy with the replacement .

Good products, bad advice on 1Aauto Utubd video.
The parts were good. The shipping was fast. But the instructional video by 1Aauto was misleading. 3 seperate auto mechanics agreed that on a vehicle as old as my Explorer, the only way to get bolts out was to cut them out with a welding torch. I paid a licensed mechanic to replace mine. They had to order the upper frame bushing, not included just a steel sleeve. I will continue to buy from 1Aauto, but no more Utube videos. I will let a mechanic do the work.

Spring hangers
This project was very difficult. Your parts were excellent. Ive used others from elsewhere that was nowhere near the good quality of yours. But this project required tools I didnt own. The origional ones were moulded and rusted together. I should have had a cutting torch. But I got it done. Safer now

Doesnt the spring come with a bushing? Not totally sure.
Brian H January 7, 2016
A A July 6, 2017
The kit does include the bushing for the spring but only a sleeve for the frame bolt. Burning the bolt requires that bushing be replaced also.
D A December 21, 2018
Yes it did ! Thank goodness
