    I'd be scard of revolver shackles up front. I would think it'd give some VERY dangerous bump steer.

    yes cross over helps bumpsteer and i think i would be kinda scared of revolvers on the front, but it'd be cool if the worked well. i assume they offer some lift so i would lower the front spring hangers as well so you don't point the pinion down too badly.

    i would leave the shackles at the back of the springs. of course putting them at the front would work too. with a revolver shackle the spring would basically "pivot" around the opposite end of the spring and with it pivoting at the back it would really help the driveline situation.
