The shackle math doesn't make sense to me. Maybe I'm over thinkin it, but this is what I got: '91 YJ 4.0L Auto with 38k miles. This is a DD, may see some intermediate off roading, will not be on any hard core trails
Everything is bone stock except the 245/75/16 MT/R's I picked up for $400. (only rubs a little in the rear on the flares).
I just want an extra 1"-1.5", probably through a shackle lift. People say a 2" lift shackle will only give 1" of true lift, which I get.
the shackles I'm looking at are 6.25" bolt to bolt, advertised as a 1.5" lift. If the stock shackles at 4", then Southwest shackles are 2.25" longer. According to common knowledge, this would be 1.125" of lift. What happened to the 1.5"? Or is this just how it works?

Anyone have experience with this shackle. Between a 1" and a 1.5" of true lift on a shackle, any reason not to go with the 1.5"?
