Re: My Reverse Shackle YJ Suspension,....

I had to remove 3 add-a-leafs,....strangely enough, one of the leaf packs was missing an add-a-leaf. I now have a 4 leaf pack front and rear.....

Hear are some more pics of the brackets and the install....

First the Front,.....

I will be adding a 2x4 or 2x6 front bumper to be welded in place and also act as cross member and really strengthen the extensions.

The front shackle hanger was re-used, but it was recommended by AAPA to drill a new hole 1" back and 1" up from the original hole,...after drilling the hole, I found that the stock hole set the shackle at a 45' angle which is better. I might have to adjust the pinion angle of the front and cut the ends to adjust caster too.....That is for another day.... :don'tknow:

As you can see, the brake lines will need some relocation and extended and the extra length of the u-bolts cut down...,.....the brake lines have  already be installed, I will add updated pics after I cut the u-bolts,......soon,...... :zuperdave:

It is never to soon too accept Jesus into your life, but in a moment, it
could be too late.
