    Shackle Kit Opinions MORryde vs LCI

    I am planning on upgrading the suspension on my Imagine 2970RL with the LCI Road Armor. My problem is the shackle kit. I planned on using, and have ordered, the MORryde HD shackle kit with wet bolts. It has been on backorder for quite some time and I want to get this done before a trip in about 6 weeks.

    An alternative would be the LCI Equa-Flex Shackle kit. From what I can tell the difference between the two is that LCI does not have bushings and the shackle straps are much thinner than the MORryde. Standard straps not heavy duty. I would only go with the LCI if I couldn't get the MORryde in time. Also, I guess I could install the Road Armor equalizer with my existing shackles for the one trip.

    Does anyone have experience with the LCI shackle kit? Would I have to order the bushings separately if it even uses bushings?

    Which LCI kit? The Road Armor installation kit is heavier links and all wet bolts, but no bushings.

    Just a standard kit then. Not worth the money. You could just reuse your stock shackles, get a new set of bushings, and pick up the additional wet bolts your need from any trailer shop for small money. Around here, bronze bushings are $1-1.25/ea and wet bolts, depending on which length are $4.69-5.40/ea with deformed lock nut.
