Google or eBay search they are really easy to find and they are interchangeable between all years

2 inch wide by 3/8th thick bar stock. Drill with 7/16th bit and hacksaw, grinder if you want pretty. Factory shackle is 4 inches hole to hole if I remember right. Add 2 inches to that for every 1 inch of lift. EX 6 inch center hole to center hole is 1 inch lift shackle, 8 inch c-c is 2 inch lift shackle (if I was right on factory measurement so double check).

If you are in canada I have a set of RC's kicking around. PITA to send south, you'll be cheaper buying some off ebay.
