Re: Shackle reversle and shackle lift
<font face="Times New Roman">
<font color=green>A shackle lift in the front that's good for 4-5 inches? So the new shackes are going to be 8-10 inches longer for a total shackle length of about 14-16 inches[img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img]? Not only is this horrifyingly dangerous, but the front driveshaft would probably not hook up, and the steering would be a truely frightening thing to behold. It would have an extreme amount of caster, the wheels would not want to return to center, they'd want to turn one way or the other all the time. Anyways, the most lift you can realistically get in the front from shackles is about an inch, maybe 1.5". 1.5 would be 3" longer shackles, and even that would goof up the steering geometry a fair amount.
