How to install the rear shackles on your Willys MB/GPW Jeep – Part of an ongoing “Jeep” disassembly and restoration series sponsored by Kaiser Willys.
After you have lifted the rear axle and leaf spring assemblies, slide the leaf spring shackle into the rear end of the leaf spring assembly and the rear shackle bracket on the interior side of the frame. Next, secure the assembly using the threaded shackle bushings and tighten using the appropriate tool. Insert the grease fittings into the open end of the shackle bushings and tighten. Repeat for the opposing side.
