      Thanks for the reply. I'm not too mechanically savvy so I'm relying on my mechanic and he's more than positive it's a Ford rear. Where do you find factory shackles??
    11. What do you guys suggest for lowering the rear in my Firebird?

      Haha thanks a lot.

      Now I've come to realize 15x7 is too small for the rear so I'm going to go 15x8 all around. I just hope the Ford rear end doesn't change the bolt pattern...
