shackle reversal on early FSJ

This might be a strange question but I keep hearing about jeepers who reverse their front shackles (front to back) for a smoother ride. CJ's have a conversion kit. I noticed on older FSJ's (with the springs hung to the side of the framerails) that the mounting studs are the same size and the shackle will fit the front or rear stud. The spring centerbolt is right in the center too, so it would be easy to flip the springs because the eyelets are different. Anybody ever done this or heard of it?
