    Ok people, it has bugged me enough to get my friends digital camera, take the pictures, get a photopoint account, and post this. What do my shackles point toward the front of the vehicle with respect to where they bolt onto the ORD flip. I have called superlift to make sure they are the right springs, and they are. I am pretty sure the ORD flip is installed right. So, what is the deal? It is limiting my droop and i would like droop. Here is the link. http://albums.photopoint.com/j/AlbumIndex?u=1388623&a=10362966 Just pick one and take a look. Sorry this is the first time i posted a pick. One of ya'll that knows how to do it as a clickable link just tell me and i won't let it happen again. Thanks - Doug

    Doug,
    Looked at your photos and I fail to see what the problem is. Also, could you please clarify how it is that the shackle flip is limiting droop? The shackles are nearly straight up and down while your truck is sitting, so the geometry seems right. The shackles are also pointing in the right direction, according to the ORD site.

    Like Blue85 said, i believe it is in correct position according to the pic on ORD. I think I understand why you are asking, are you thinking of how the CJ rear shackles compress backward when they are sitting?

    But from the pic on ORD yours looks correct.

    Looks about the same angle as mine and Depdogs. I ramp a 752 on a 25 limited mostly by front shocks. Dep ramps a 980 I believe. Shouldn't hurt droop. The big killer on Droop is shocks that are the incorrect length.
