yeah i know, it those long 2 inch lift shackles. There way to long and it bugs me to. The springs sag a little, so when i get 2 inch lift springs, i can go with a stock shackle. I just had to use that shackles because it kept the back even with the front cause the back springs were sagging. I dont know if it would catch any mudholes or anything cause i havent really offroaded with it yet. Just rock roads and light mud in the trip i went on.

Sag a little? They have a negative bend in them. Did you remove any leafs? What did you get the springs from?

I commend the efforts but those new 2" leafs are gonna be much better. Nice work though. What brand of springs are you going with?

So i assume you'll be looking at Cherokee leafs then? good job man. For some reason those 38s look small to me though (no jk) You can also add "air bags" to saggy leaf springs so...

arent XJ leafs longer than YJ? looks to me your negative arch is from your spring hangers being too close. maybe not.

edit: wtf differnce does the XJ YJ make.

Deff. get something with a military wrap. They are springs made to handle spring over applications a little better. Or some OME heavy load springs.

These RE springs seem like they would be a better choice though. Note the Eye loop on either end is flipped so the spring will not go into a negative arch.

well done. Ecksjay's been doing a lot of digging into XJ springs. You might want to ask him.

While it's not a TJ, here's a thread that shows an LJ with springs done right on Pirate4x4. the same principle applies here.
