Re: lift for 30x9.5 tyres
The 2" shackle reversal is the lift I have on my small Samurai. Two inches in the front- one inch in the back. With the perches and plates redrilled, to move the axle forward 3/4", the tires don't even come close to rubbing. My 30's are actually only 29" tall. A 1" lift shackle will work fine in the rear with 30's, I'm not sure about the front. I would guess that a 2" longer(1" lift) shackle would probably clear my tires in the front with a little hammering of the wheel wells. BTW, I'm using a set of stock spoke wheels that I reversed. I welded the old valve stem holes and drilled new ones on the back side, now the front side.
