    keith, dep, or anybody else who is running\"lowrider\" extended shackles

    i bought a pair of these off of ebay for 20 bucks and installed them today it did lift the rear a little more, and it rotates the pinion a little more towards the t-case but, what i seemed to notice the most was that it made my rear leafs flatter. i realized this because the overload spring is now almost touching the rest of the leaf pack. it does ride better, primarily because the bolts are all greased now [​IMG].

    are there any other benefits to using these??

    thanks...rob

    The main benefit is that you are now cool like me and Dep!! They need to be welded up with the support plate to keep them from folding. Remember Dep did that on trail 5 at the large rock. The first time you came over. Other than that I have no complaints.

    Not that great. I would like to have some sipping but need to get a tool for that first.
