instralled shackle reversal (review)

i just got dont installing my reversal and am writing a first time review. it looks good. the ride quality is by far the best i have felt in a yj. i gained droop by moving the shackle angle.i also gained a hell of a lot of flex. i will have pics up tomorrow as it is dark out side and i dont want to take pics right now. it is a twizted engineering custom made shackle reversal.

I have been wanting to do a shackle reversal on mine for a while. How much did it increase the lift? How much was the kit?

Now is it possible to do the shackle reversal swap, and also install a shackle lift?

depending on the set up, but i'd say no. the geometry is already being changed enough

i wanna see the pics and review, i've been kicking it around and get mixed reviews, some love it some hate it.

It would be a nice set-up to see. And also how it would work out.

ok sorry folks i have been getting lost in forums and post over the last few months. i still stand by the fact that i love it. 3" add in droop due to where we mounted the shackle hanger. now that the shackles are not fighting the force put on them they can easily swing back. to see pics just hit up my car domain in the sig.
