    I just ordered my Tuff Country 4in EZ ride springs and I was wondering if it would be worth it to move the rear front shackle forward and lengthen it for more flex and better ride quality? If so there a proper way to determine how long and where it should be or is it more by trial and error? Thanks guys.

    the correct method for calculating shackle length for a given set of springs is detailed in my 52" spring swap writeup...
