Rear Shackle Kit used with Caltrac's GM spring Part #108SH
We recommend the TSH-100 press tool kit for this product. Global West Suspension manufactures a Del-A-Lum shackle kit to be used with a Caltrac traction kit for the Camaro--model years 1967, 1968, and 1969. The kit is designed for standard GM Springs not Caltrac springs. Del-A-Lum shackle kits are shipped with rear frame eyelet bushings, rear eye leaf bushings, shackles, and related thrust washers, inserts, and hardware (shackles are not made for mono leaf springs). Rubber and polyurethane will allow the rear portion of the leaf to walk laterally. If the front bushing is solid mounted, the length of the leaf becomes a long torque arm reacting on the forward mounting point. It is trying to rip the mount out of the car. The solution is to use a Del-A-Lum shackle kit and remove the problem. The Del-a-lum bushings do not allow the leaf spring to move laterally, removing the torque effect of the leaf. They also allow a choice of preloading the bushing for decreasing leaf spring movement or running no preload and increasing leaf spring movement. Del-A-Lum Shackle Kits: A bushing that works like a bearing! Del-A-Lum bushings are perfect for street, drag and autocross applications. Installation requires the bushing housings to be pressed into the frame and the leaf spring eyelets. Inserts and thrust washers separate the housings and springs from metal-to-metal contact and provide total isolation. The inserts and thrust washers also provide a bearing surface for the bushing. This design makes the bushings operate similarly to a bearing. Grease fittings are installed and the housing is grooved internally for grease penetration. Del-A-Lum bushings also provide lateral control of the leaf springs.
TECH TIPS: Drag Race Applications When a vehicle leaves the line hard in a drag race application, the forward portion of the leaf will try to deflect inboard. This action will make the car walk sidewalks. Del-A-Lum bushings will stop the leaf from walking inboard. For drag racing applications, a lot of people place a solid type bushing in the front eyelet and leave the rear bushings in rubber or poly. Do not do this!!! Rubber and polyurethane will allow the rear portion of the leaf to walk laterally. If the front bushing is solid mounted, the length of the leaf becomes a long torque arm reacting on the forward mounting point. It is trying to rip the mount out of the car. The solution is to use a Del-A-Lum shackle kit and remove the problem.
