Default Quality Lift Shackles - Which do you prefer?

I'm looking to buy 2" lift shackles but am just wondering what you think is better; steel welded shackles or one-piece-molded steel shackles?

i got those same ones from Top Gun Customs on ebay. Super fast and free shipping. Ordered em on a late saturday night and had em at my door on wednesday morning all the way from Cali if i remember right. Really good quality. Only had mine on since Friday afternoon, but installion was a breeze except for the usual bushing problem.

It all could be personal preference, some guys might like the welded ones, some may like the one piece. I wanted the one piece because in my mind that weld could break. Not taking away from the companies craftmanship, i have just seen some wild things happen.

i would find something with free shipping. or at least half that. 25-30 is waaaay too much. they can drop those in one of the priority mail boxes and ship them for like 10 dollars. you know what they say, anything up to 75 lbs, if it fits, it ships. and those would fit in one of those boxes for SURE!
