tire installation

Most vehicles with solid axles have leaf springs that connect the axle assembly to the frame/chassis. Depending on the application, these leaf springs can connect to the frame either directly (the norm for the front mounting point) or with a connector known as a shackle. In older vehicles, these shackles are just plates between the frame and the leaf spring while in others—especially newer vehicles—shackles are stamped pieces and usually replaced as an assembly, although you can install aftermarket bushings in them.
