All it takes is a little cutting and trimming. I'm not finished yet but I'll post some more pictures as I make progress. I cut the bottom flange off and then used a grinder to smooth it out and make bottom part of the bracket flush with the raised section that the shackle bolts to. I have a little more trimming and grinding to do so both sides are even but that's really just for eye candy, as it is now the shackle will swing at least 180 degrees before contacting the bracket. I have some 3/8" thick steel plate that I still need to cut the remaining pieces out of. Probably get them laid out tomorrow but am going to be busy with other stuff over this weekend and the next week so might not make much more progress until next weekend.
