Hm I see the rear have to be the other way. Would you happen to know if the rear have bushings on the top of the shackle? I don't think my frame has the holes for bushings.....

busemans that would definitely be the fastest way.
03-30-2012 10:42 PM
DirtyRob Cut the bolt get another bolt .......done
03-30-2012 10:18 PM
busemans dang, that sucks.
03-30-2012 10:16 PM
Tang87 Yeah I was planning to try to pull the nuts off and try to pull the rubber out and metal pin and try to pry out the bolt, but my top bolt has no bushings to pull out and won't come out for the life of me so im stuck with dropping the skid ...and those bolts just spin ..

DirtRider1357 for the front shackles, the arch should point towards the rear of the jeep. for the rear shackles, the arch should point towards the front of the jeep. as far as being upsidedown or not is personal preference. if you keep them the direction they are now, but just flip the arch around, it will help prevent spring inversion.

Nubby55 Far as I Know, there upside down and backwards, or mine are!

Well poop. I plan on eventually getting new springs with a lift kit soon but im always broke. Backwards so they are supposed to arch forward right?
