Cool, thanks for the info. 1.5" might be a little much for me though. I think I need about1" max for a little more room for 32's. I assume that they are 3" longer than the stock shackles for an XJ?Originally posted by St. Pete:
Any 4x4 chev full size shackles fit 1.5" of lift a little grinding is necessary to fit them in. will give more flex I've had em for 4 months and they work great. Paid 35 bucks.
O.K., now you've got me confused. How can a 1" longer shackle give 1 1/2" more lift? I always thought that for every 1" in additional shackle length, that 1/2" lift was gained?????Originally posted by St. Pete:
no they are only an inch or so longer but yes they add 1.5 inches or more lift. you could just add a 1 " block for cost u about 60 or 70 bucks. U will probably need new u bolts.
Well, sounding smart is better than nothing!Originally posted by nikon_jeeper:
You're right bud...1" longer will not yield 1.5" lift.
I think some of these folks have the metric system screwing them up.
Use a MJ or Chevy fullsize shackle and it'll round out a lift nicely. Combine these with a 1 or 1.5" lift block and 2" spacer up front...throw on some 31's and wheel it. Do what works for you. You sound pretty smart so go with it.
Well, I suppose from you tooOriginally posted by Flex:
ANY other XJ chat is welcome?...O.K. My XJ RULES!!! (Even though I haven't even wheeled it since buying it two weeks ago) Seriously though, I think an inch will do it for ya. What about a block? have you considered it? Tomken didn't use a block for your kit did they? Ciao Bella
