The Rago Fabrication Shackle Hangers: Why and when should I upgrade?
Navigating your way through your next suspension upgrade can be a little bit tricky. If you want your suspension to perform in the way you had always dreamed, an upgraded shackle hanger is the way to go. The most frequently asked question we get about shackle hangers are why do I need this?
Why do I need to put this on my Tacoma?
To answer is easy, but also kinda complicated at the same time. Simply put, the stock shackle hangers are not cutting the bill when a high performance suspension system is added to the Tacoma.
Why is that? when you upgrade your suspension system, the new leaf springs allow the suspension to droop or (go down) more than stock, putting more strain on the stock hangers. This can cause a multitude of problems, including breaking your shackles, shuttering rear ends, and decreasing your ride performance.
The Rago Fabrication Shackle Hangers are the next best upgrade you can do after upgrading your suspension. With this complete factory replacement, you'll see, performance increases in your suspension cycling, improved geometry, increased droop travel and more. Included with our shackle hangers are the strongest Polyurethane Bushings on the market, allowing your leaf springs to adjust easily and give you the smoothest ride of your life.

Installed these hangers a month ago. Wanted to get some real world experience with them before writing a review. They have lots of on road mileage combined with plenty of off-road. These hangers are beefy! Construction and quality is great. To sum it all up, these will immediately improve your ride quality. My truck handles completely different. It feels like a new truck! My truck feels stiff and planted going around corners, no more jitters over uneven road, and my suspension feels smoother as the hangers actually allow the leafs to do their job properly. It’s weird to say stiff and smooth in the same sentence but until you try you won’t understand. Having no more wet noodle, flexy, loose end feeling is fantastic! I do have to admit the install is not the greatest. I give it a 4/5 for difficulty. Took me around 6 hours to complete. Make sure you have the right tools and drill bits for this job! Drilling out the factory rivets had to be the hardest part. In the end I’m very happy with the results. It’s well worth the install. The benefits are immediately apparent and it’s well worth the investment!!! @TacoPandaTRD
We truly appreciate the feedback, we're happy to hear this was a successful purchase!!
Just had my hangers installed and am extremely pleased with the parts, quality and ride improvement. Pure beef and they fit in perfectly with my stock leaf pack + Icon AAL. I can't wait to flex them out on the trail. The truck feels more planted and stable while driving. The stock spare fits a little tightly now. I plan on going up in tire size and may try and use the under spare location. I highly recommend and the price cannot be beat.
The hangers are great quality of materials and craftsmanship we have come to enjoy from any Rago product. The only downside is that it reduces the area below the bed to store your spare tire. I'm running 33" Nitto Ridge Grapplers (LT255/80r17) and was able to fit the spare up in the OEM location with little modifications. The Rago hangers are beefy (which is a good thing while on the trail) but reduces the OEM spare tire location by 1" - 1
5". It's not the end of the world but be aware that you need to no plan for how/where you want to store your spare tire now.
Best aftermarket shackles hangers my taco rides pretty smooth, when I purchased it was backorder but it’s all good. Customer’s service were awesome. Rago Fabrication rocks!
If you're on the fence -then pull the trigger. Solid design, perfection level build quality, powder coat was perfect, hope it holds up for years. Install was very painless. Hardest part was grinding off the 4 rivets that held on the factory hangers.
All of our parts are proudly built start to finish, in-house, from American materials.
