Shackle reversal?

Hey guys, I was thinking about doing a shackle reversal and had a couple questions. First, is it really worth it? It's a good sum of money for how much better of a ride? And second, how much does a longer travel drive shaft slip yoke go for installed?

I wouldnt waste my money on a reversal kit. It won't really do you no justice. Put your money in a locker or something else.

Pros and Cons of Shackle Reversal
Good explanation about the pro's and con's. I had thought about doing the shackle reversal, but since my Jeep will be mostly street driven, I've decided to not do it.

i've read countless build threads most of the guys who wheel YJs on leafs that have done a shackle reversal have gone back to the stock style set up after breaking springs or getting hung up on the shackle.
