Clawed95Riogrande I am running 1inch shackles. I don't like very many of Rough Country's products but the have decent (and cheap) YJ shackles that are built strong. Check their website out

Phrankoff from what I hear/see around the forums.. 1.25-1.50 is the max depending on who you ask

Clawed95Riogrande I had the same problem. Your best bet is a suspension overhaul. A 4inch kit for YJs is relatively cheap but if that's not in the budget replace the shocks and go for front and rear shackles. Rule of thumb with YJ shackles is for every 2 inches of added length you'll get an inch of lift. Also longer shackles will alter the pinion angle so don't go too big!

Phrankoff With a 3" lift and 33s.. I believe there would have to be another inch of lift somewhere. Were the old shackles shackle lifts?
Do you have a body lift?

Replacing the shocks may help but you should have 4" lift to accommodate 33" tires

suspsension issue

hey i have a 95 with an old worn out 3" skyjacker lift im running 33x11.5 tires and i just got my rear springs replaced cause i broke one of them. But now my rear tires are rubbing the fender when i have people in the back and go around a corner. My shocks are probably worn out to so should i replace them or should i be thinking about putting bigger shackles in the back.
