CJ-7 Shackles

Does anyone here have, or know someone that has a CJ-7 (specifically looking at an 85)?

My buddy has one that needs new shackles, but he's leaving the country for a year (2 total) on Saturday. He's left his Jeep at his sister's with the request that I drive it for him from time to time (darn!). The only thing I dislike about it is the rear shackles need to be replaced. I can make a new set, not a problem, but I didn't have a chance to take any measurements, short of the bolt spacing.

If you have a CJ-7 and can take measurements, or know where I can find the information/dimensions of the stock shackles, I'd greatly appreciate it.

On a side note, I intend to beef up the stock shackles a bit. It won't cost much more, if anything to do it, so why not, right?

(apologies if you see this multiple times. Cross posting like mad.)
