Wanted - Shackles for '78 2wd

Dang snow/rust belt! The set off my parts truck are rusted through and my originals don't look any better.
1978 F-100 2wd (2.5" wide springs)

I've also seen some cross reference lists that say bronco II or E-150 shackles will work too. Anybody have experience here?

I have a nice set off a 77 nm truck 50 plus shipping for all four hangers and the shackels with all the bolts in nice shape. I just removed them and was fixing to list them on ebay, pm me if interested. If you just want the shackels 15 plus shipping.

Well somehow I cut the top off in the pictures, but they are in great solid condition.

Not the same.
There are different parts: Shackles are not the same as shackle brackets.

Shackle brackets are riveted (as original) to the frame rails. The shackles themselves attach to the springs, then to the shackle brackets.

What do you need, the shackle brackets, the shackles, or both? Ford originally sold the shackles by themselves, or as a kit which also included the bushing.

The following fit: 1973/79 F100/150 2WD.

2) D3TZ5775A .. Shackle Bracket-Front of Rear Spring / Obsolete

No Ford Dealer or obsolete parts vendor has any.
