    Size of Capri rear shackle bolts?

    I'm looking for an adjustable rear spring shackle to give the Corsair a slight lift at the rear for back road driving. I can't find a shackle lift kit for the Cortina, but there's one available for the Capri. Does the Capri have the same 7/16 inch shackle bolts as the Cortina and Corsair?

    They've told me the Capri custom shackles are available in 7/16'', but I'm still using the standard shackles, and trying cheaper fixes first. I bought some proper nylon leaf spring pads, they're 5mm thick, and the back end is closer to the original height now. I'll try new front spring bushes next.

    The new pads and the rubber bushes are in, and there's less thumping from the back now. I might leave it at that. The only problem is one of the pads is being gradually squeezed out by the spring movements. Perhaps I'll have to Araldite it on the raised side.
