I'm going to be getting a 2.5" lift kit for my 87 YJ. One of my stock front shackles is bent, so I have to replace at least one. I haven't been able to find stock ones online so I'm looking at after-market ones to install.
First question, if I install shackles that lift at all, will I have to install a SYE and brake-line extensions with the lift kit? It's hard to find replacement shackles without lift.
Any recommendations for brand of shackle? Any advice on changing them? I won't be doing any major climbing or rock crawling, so I'm thinking greasable ones are not needed.
