Default Rear shackle replacement help!

So i went to put on lift shackles on the rear of my 86 4x4 and the new sleeves that came with the shackles are loose in the bushings? and has me wondering if this is the factory rear shackles and bushings or not. any help is appreciated

The factory '86 shackles have thick shoulders that run the full width, and then drop down in size where the loos plate and the nuts go on. It is not separate plates and bolts like the aftermarket parts.


When I went to aftermarket lift shackles, I also had to get an Energy Suspension rear bushing kit. It comes with the 1/2" I.D. sleeves that you will need.
Here's a link, but you can shop around. https://www.carparts.com/details/Nis...B&gclsrc=aw.ds
