    I bought a used shackle flip from another member and will be instaling it this weekend. My question is how to mount the actual shackle, open or closed side towards the u-bolts? Does it make a difference?

    I noticed in both the CK5 and OffRoad.com write ups the closed side is toward the u-bolts but the ORD sale page shows the open side toward the u-bolt. I would think the open side is correct but I just want to make sure.

    Thanks!

    It's purely aesthetic, you decide which you like. I prefer the closed side to the front so that it looks a bit more "finished" from the front.
