Lovells Greasable Shackles and Greasable Pins
Lovells shackles and pins are manufactured using finest quality and are case hardened to 0.2mm to provide greater resistance to wear, thus increasing pin and bush life.
Machined load bearing surfaces allow for increased dispersion and coverage of grease, which greatly improves performance and reduces shackle and pin deterioration.
All Lovells shackles, plates and pins are manufactured to exceed O.E (Original Equipment) specifications. The majority of Lovells shackles and pins are fully greasable with easily accessible grease nipples and come complete with nuts and washers. (Shackles and pins that are not greasable are marked accordingly in the application listing).
Lovells Anti-Inversion Shackles.
Lovells offer, as an option, triangle style "Anti-Inversion" greasable shackle kits for leaf springs which eliminate the risk of shackle inversion under extreme use and heavy duty/excessive suspension articulation, thus keeping the leaf spring from 'locking'.
All Lovells "Anti-Inversion" greasable shackles are manufactured using the finest quality steel and are case hardened to 0.2mm to provide greater resistance to wear, thus increasing pin and bush life. Machined load bearing surfaces allow for increased dispersion and coverage of grease which greatly improves performance and reduces shackle deterioration. All Lovells "Anti-Inversion" shackles are galvanized and passivated (plated) for maximum life.

Check your shackle and pin selection to ensure you have the correct part to suit your leaf spring and application. Most Lovells Shackles and Pins are greasable. Depending on the conditions the vehicle is subject to, it is wise to constantly grease shackles and pins via the easy access grease nipples. A sign that greasing is necessary is when the suspension bush squeaks. Clean all components thoroughly and remove any rust, old paint and undercoat. Check for worn, pitted or suspect parts before fitting Lovells components. Worn or corroded shackles and pins will prematurely wear bushes.
Use generous amounts of grease when assembling (Lovells suggest a No.2 lithium complex base) on all surfaces designed to pivot. Once assembled, ensure all greasable type shackles and pins are loaded via the grease nipples. Do not apply grease to press-fit surfaces or the outside surfaces of the shackle/pin bushes. Tighten all bolts and nuts to manufacturers’ specification, with vehicle at normal ride height (normalizing).
