Will the shackles give just a little boost to help out with 32's and save a penny pincher from buying a lift?

you don't need longer shackles for most "real" lifts! I have the 2.5 inch ome leafs, they do the lift part. are you looking for a strictly shackle lift? If so id advise against it... for every 2 inches longer at the shackle you will get 1 inch in lift.... so if you have 8 inch shackles (I used to have) you only get 2 inches of lift. because its double what the stocks are and the leaf to frame connection is fixed so you'll divide by 2! so 8 inch shackles (which are pretty awful) give you a 2 inch shackle lift!!!

Need both sports bars for a 1991 wrangler yj. The ones that go from windshield to roll bar? I need a good jeep junk yard. Also, i need to know if another year or model will fit my 91. Thanks

I'm running M.O.R.E. Greasable Boomerang Shackles on the front and I love them. I have the rear ones as well, but haven't gotten around to installing them. They're just under $100 a set and absolutely worth the money. 5/8" zinc plated steel, greasable bushings and quality components. I fully recommend them. Here they are in the front...

So with 2-1/2" lift springs- If I change my rear shackles with the RC 1-1/4" boomerangs that will give me a total of 3-3/4" lift in the rear?

Will that cause any driveline problems?

The reason I ask is after my 2.5" lift 6 months ago, it looks to me
Like my rear end is a bit lower than the front now.
Can I get by without changing the front shackles?

I plan on using Waggy springs, and with thoise and the RC shackles it will put me back to around my existing height (3.5" Lift springs from a older Dick Cepek lift kit that is no longer available, I will miss the military wrap theese springs have...)...

I have had this plan for a while, so had a quick link on my desktop for it.

Refrence:

Ill be keeping my YJ spring under... and I already have TJ flares and I already opened my wheel wells to match...

If you do get Boomerangs, mount them correctly:

I'm sorry...I wrote 5/8" instead of 3/8"
