Question Greasable spring shackel bolts

Anyone know if greasable spring shackel bolts are available for a 2002 F250 XLT 4x4?

Sorry Brian,

I mis read your question. I found some JC Whitney greasable shackles but I couldn't find any greasable pins to compliment them. I also wasn't too impressed by the pictures of their kit? It didn't look beefie enough (I may be wrong)
About the only thing I can think of is to get my stock pins drilled and tapped. Now I am not sure how much strength that will take away?????

Unfortunately drilling and taping isn't enough.
You would need to machine a spiral groove around the outside of
the pin to spread the grease around the inside of the bush.

These things are available for rice burner 4x4s, landrovers, jeeps and
caravans, I have a set on my van.

Puzzles me why there are none for F trucks.

If you are only after the shackle pins have a look at the JC Whitney's? I was looking for the whole package to try to keep it all a plush ride as much as possible. I am about to do my lift kit and wanted to do it all at once.
Good luck
