Wrong forum bud; search using google and Prepare yourself for a flaming.
xj_man_646 said:Shackes on the rear of the spring are better than on the front, because with it on the rear, the axle will naturally move backwards when a bump is encountered, thus letting it go over obstacles with greater ease. When the shackle is up front, the axle can not move (much if any) backwards, so the Jeep is forced to drive the axle up with more force, and risking the chance of breaking more stuff.
I'm guessing this is most of your problem. It is extremely difficult to design a leaf spring that is 4" taller than stock (and doesn't sag) without increasing the spring rate and consequently decreasing flex. Go SOA or lower and sawzall and you will have better flex.possumjeep said:right now my springs are of the 4" lift flavour and I have shackles that are about an inch and a half longer than stock with 33" tires and no body lift
PS - revolvers suck! I haven't been wheeling with a single rig that got any advantage from using them. They unload when climbing or running off camber and contribute to wheel hop. Maybe somebody has seen benefit, but I haven't.possumjeep said:I have used the Google search and Ive gotten all the "newb" basic answers
longer shocks (done)
shorter bump stops (done)
remove sways (done in rear and discos in front)
longer shackles (done)
remove track bars (done)
this is all basic stuff that anyone with an IQ higher than a monkeys could figure out
I want to know about shock position /angle
shackle position front of spring or rear
quater eliptical springs
4 link vs 3 link
things along this line
things that a "newbie" isn't going to know squat about so if I was asking about them yes I would have posted in the other forum but I'm a little futher on than the "Can I fit 31s on my stock jeep" bull sh*t"
but if people feel the need to flame me then so be it
