Good upgrade. Start spraying shackle bolts with PB blaster now. Have a grinder or sawzall on hand in case things go south.

You may want to get new bushings also. Sometimes the bolt will be frozen in there.

Im using the same boomerang shackles. Haven't had a problem with them except the grease cerks are cheap, so Id go to napa and get some quality ones. Most of mine broke off as soon as I pushed the grease gun onto them.

A lot of guys that lift their Jeeps use boomerang shackles to keep the springs from inverting. It's a good solid upgrade.

I will be ordering some soon, I need longer shackles, my military wrap hits the frame and my friends are giving me a hard time about the BANG! sound they make when they hit.
