Post YJs reverse or not?

Some setups use a reverse shackle some not. I am getting ready to swap Toy axles and do YJs and would appreciate some suggestions..... <IMG SRC="smilies/usa.gif" border="0">

luigi---I just finished moving my shackle to the front of my Yota and was pleasantly surprised by its performance both on and off road. Just thought I'd share that. http://dreamwater.com/zuk/toyota.html

I've always heard that having the shackles up front offers advantages off-road when you drive slower, and having a S/R is better on the pavement & faster off-road.

i think shackle's in the rear works best offroad. you can slide the solid mount up over rocks, instead of sliding your shackle into a rock and bending your spring. <IMG SRC="smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0"> my shackle reverse gave me a much better aproach angle. there will brake dive though...
