    I can\'t believe this!

    a few days ago I posted a note about some front lift advice. I am in search of 1-2 inches more lift. I have Superlift superride springs in front. Do I A: purchase lift shackles. or B: buy new BDS springs mine are only 1 year old. Is there really that much difference in ride quality? Please someone of the 30 people that viewed my last post please give me some advice

    i think the fact that no one has replied is a good thing- there isn't much BS in this message forum, compared to others i frequent- when someone with the info you seek sees your post, i'm sure they'll drop it on you!

    Ok, let me give an opinion for cheap way of getting that little lift. Get the ORD shackles and the ORD 1" add-a-leafs. This total will net you approx. 1 1/4" lift. Best thing is, it is very SAFE method of gaining that little lift.

    i used a set of longer shackles on mine. I don't like the weakness of the ones I have, but I will fix that. I think the longer shackles made it ride a little better and added more flex by giving the spring more pivot. the ord shackles are nice and strong. I gained 1 inch by going 2 inches longer

    your right. I don't understand the jeep thing!

    You could always go with the 1" add a leaves that ORD sales. They do not affect your ride quality or flexibility.
