Re: which shackle reversal

My experience is that shackle reverse kits only are effective in correcting "push" on paved roads due to long shackle lifts in the front. Off road the reversed kit causes 2 problems. 1, tire will hit rear of fender well when you push into an immovable object. 2, when going up a slippery, steep uphill the front tires push the reversed shackles back causing wheel hop. if you dont back down and try again, the hop ends in a broken knuckle or axle. Keep your front shackles and drive a little slower on the pavement.
