I have an 81 Cj-5 with a 4 inch pro comp lift and confer shackels. when standing in front of my jeep the shackles lean towards the driviers side of the rig. I also have prothane bushings in the springs and the shackles. This set up is about 1 year old is this a common problem? What needs to be done to correct it?? Thanks for all your help Welseya.

Doesn't sound too good if both shackes are leaning in the same direction. I'd have to agree with Camo.....something's probably bent. Post pics and we can take a look.

Are you still using (if it ever had one) some kind of stabalizer bar? If so, remove it and see what happens. Both shackles going one direction means something is "pushing" it that way.

Every jeep I've seen the rear shackles always lean outward from the frame. Never seen straight up and down set yet! <IMG SRC="smilies/skull.gif" border="0">

They always do that. Check to see if anything is bent....if not, then you probably need to replace the bushings

turn the steering wheel all the way to one side, look at shackles, turn all the way to the other side, look at shackles. Any change?

I don't see any pics. On my CJ both on the front and back the shackles look like this

bushings. I've had the alignmaent checked and
the frame. Everything is straight. Go figure.

don't worry about it!! if you wheel with other CJ's with longer then stock front shackles and no reversal you will see they are never straight!!!!! I really mean they never are straight
