Shackle rumours; I need proof.
Ok, In this shackle business, there is rumours going around that a 1-inch shackle is actually only 1/2 inch of lift. I presume we are talking about a shackle that is 1 inch longer then stock. In order for this shackle to make only 1/2 inch of lift difference, it would have to be at a 45 degree angle. but, it, is not in most cases. My shackles are about 5 to 10 degrees off of being completely vertical. which means that if I install a 1 inch longer shackle, then I am actually getting about 4/5 inch of lift, not 1/2 inch, which is actually a big difference in the scheme of things. Tell me where I am wrong. I need educating. But that is how I see it.
