Re: What induces \"shackle inversion\"?

That's common on the OME's, I've seen it many times. You'll need to relocate your front and shackle hangers to prevent them from doing that. Otherwise it'll keep doing it and eventually bend the main spring. Seen that too often too. Here is a set, SOA on a YJ, that are inverted. Kinda a PITA having to get out the crowbar every time it's flexed up.
