If it's just the pins you need, not the complete shackle, the club sell these separately now.
If you need the whole thing, try Martin at Caprigear.

If you want new ones, I would go with Martin. It's a matter for each owner, but when I changed mine 4 years ago I got a set of reconditioned and coated ones from a scrapyard/breaker yard. £10 the pair like new. They were still like new when I was underneath the car last weekend cleaning up and rust protecting.
