8" long shackles?

those are fawking huge.


you need to man up and spring over the thing. Yes it's expensive, yes you have to fab a lot of shit. but you're at the limit, and if you spring over correctly, it'll drive and perform better.


I wouldn't use 8" shackles on the street.

If they are 2" lift (4" longer tan stock), it sounds kina scary. I tey're just 2" longer (1" lift), not so bad - but it'll still wear out bushins faster.

If you put them on the front you're begging to fawk up your caster...if it steers correctly now, it probably won't when you're done.

True, but that can be corrected with bolt on steel angle shims like RE sells.
Still' I don't like long shackles. I'd rather put on a 1" body lift.
