no this is a shitty noob thread, in the wrong section. this goes in noob tech. so fuckwad, you missed the mark (and right forum)Not Tuesday, just asking a legitimate question
looking for someone intelegent to give an intelegent answer...sorry you miss the mark
Cool...all I was looking forShackle above the leave spring is called compression. It isn't as strong. It allows for more droop.
Shackle below the leaf is called tension. It can take a lot more load on it. It doesn't have the same range of motion that a compression shackle has.
Other than looking different, its seems to be working for them. They run lift blocks to get the lift back though. They've been running it that way for a few years now as far as I know.departure / approach angle comes to mind as an advantage... I think I saw an F-Toy team running shackles up in the rear to gain departure angle...
