    looks like the top bracket bolts to the frame and the bottom one is for the spring eye giving side axle shift maybe? Hell i don't know, but its a good guess. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    I bet they are a combo of shackle extension and flip. Like a Revolver...?

    They are called Z- boxes
    Made by Tera flex
    The Z-Boxes reduce spring stress by working in combination with the Revolver Shackles. Their opposing construction allows only one side to open at a time for added stability. The Z-Boxes help maintain proper driveshaft angles when used with the shackles.
    I know a few jeepers who run these.

    If they are for a Jeep, who cares what those things are? /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Look nice and breakable. Kinda like Jeeps, only those look beefier.
