ok guys i need to install some longer shackles. I have the shackle relocation brackets and then these shackles: 1984-01 XJ Cherokee Shackle by Rubicon Express - JeepHut

Has anyone extended their shackles and made them longer than 5"? how did you do it and how did it work out for you? My issue is the offset top bushing is 2.5" and bottom leaf spring is like 3.75"

The relocation brackets give a 1inch lift and I have some of the 1-2 inch lift shackles on mine its setup on the 1inch lift hole. Not sure on exact measurements but the 2 inch lift holes where more then 5 inches and I wasn't happy with the ride setup like that. The 1 inch left setup rides better will try and get some pics with measurements for you posted up if i can today.


Here's a quick pic i took top hole is 5 inch bottom 6 inch. Bottom hole ride was a bit tipsy for me around corners and tight stuff.
