after talking with my 'friend', I went back and checked it all again. It IS the spring shackles....... the rubber bushings, I'll get a picture tommorrow, have a rubber flange that is between the bushing part and the side plates of thez shackles, or the hanger straps, i guess, and when I tighten them down till the nut gets tight, it squeezes the the bushing flange, preventing the pins from rotating. Now all I need to do to figure out , is, how much to tighten them, kinda loosely, and keep the nuts from comming off on their own. Maybe some kind of lock nut ? And maybe there is some special proceedure to tighten them with out squeezing them........
