revolver shackles

Does anyone have an idea if my new shackles will be fully effective in replacing the 4"front lift (8" on ctr bolt measurement) shackle? My YJ also has a 2" body lift. Rear shackles are stock. It seems the new shackle will be extended with current setup. Can you lend me your thoughts. Also sua is the current setup.

8 inches on center is a 2 inch lift. You want to watch how much shackle lift you put on it cause is affects the caster angle. Most people only run a 1" shackle lift, 6" on center..

All the revolver shackles Ive been around were real close to stock height. So you might be losing lift with revolvers. They dont add lift, they increase drop. Make sure your brake lines are long enough for those suckers too
