Yjpower94 Ah okay that makes sense I knew there was a certain way to put them haha.

NewYJOwner Short side up in the front(prevents shackle inversion) and short side down in the rear for frame and bumper clearance when compressed.

copleydad Short side goes down. You DON"T want it hitting the frame, it's not like a bumpstop.

You are right....boom shackles point to the center of the Jeep.

Like the TJ flares, been thinking about going that route.

2xs I was under the impression the short side went up, to act as a stop when it hits the frame.

Referencing this pic here:

in this thread:

Looking at the front, it appears he has the short side up, but has it down in the rear...

Perhaps 183Beast can verify how and why he has his this way.
