|Tarby||Looks good...I have the same lift on my Rio Grande, but went with RE 1 inch over stock straight shackles in front and RE 1 inch over stock booms in the back. I had it that way for a year or 2 with 31x10.50x15s and loved it, till I sold my CJ5, then boosted the YJ up with 1 inch body lift and fit 33's and flat flares...doesn't rub and still rides smooth.|

|Scott-CJ8||Looks great! How much longer are the shackles that you used? How much lift did they add. I'm looking at doing the same thing with my '93. Thanks!|

We torqued the main spring eyes to 80lbs, and the shackles to 45lbs.
Anyone suggest differently?

The lift is installed!
... And I have the sore bones to prove it.
Oh, and a pic. It's a RE 2.5" lift, currie boomerangs on the rear and currie straight shackles on the front, and 31x10.5 Duratracs. We only had to cut one frame-end spring bolt and the rest went pretty smoothly. I gained over 4 inches from stock springs with 30" tires.
I can't believe how well it rides. The stock springs were flat and the shocks were absolutely shot.
