Shackles are shackles really, as long as the welds are good and the steel is strong enough, they'll do exactly what you want them to!

Just remember any extra holes between the 2 bolts is a weak point in the steel and can allow the shackle to bend sideways easier. If you use your truck as a 4x4 there is a good bit of sideways force when flexing. For that price you can buy one sized shackles that will be stronger. Crap most likely get them cheaper.
