Excessive body roll and shift

Take a look. Does this demonstrate excessive boy roll and shift? Is it time to get new shackes or bushings? I have been looking at the Daystars 1/2 shackle lift. How much would this small of a lift wander. It is the same price as all the shackle lifts 0-2.25 inchs. Thank you

Headed for Gunnison, soon....

Re: Excessive body roll and shift

Also my springs are starting to fan out. It apears there is abnomal stress to the shackles because of warn bushings. Any ideas on the roll and shift?

Re: Excessive body roll and shift

Where did you get those shackles? I'm not saying I spend a lot of time running around looking at them, but I thought the through bolts were welded to one side or the shackles had a center block section to keep it from racking like you have here.

I'm certainly no expert on springs, but since nobody else responded, I thought I'd just throw this out for consideration.

Re: Excessive body roll and shift

those are stock shackles, Id look at them closely and see fi the center bolts are still centered and what shape teh rubnber is in, probably hashed.

get new poly bushings, and new shackles, and then see where its loose

Re: Excessive body roll and shift

Looks to me like worn bushings. Rubber bushings seem to flex better, but eurothane bushings give you a solid ride with much less sloppiness and wander in the steering and ride characteristics. So you could replace the bushings with rubber and it will probably be a major improvement, or the lift shackles could be the way to go if they come with new bushings. I dont think that small of a shackle lift will have any negative effects.
Just my 2 cents.

Re: Excessive body roll and shift

I figured the stock stuff was past its time. The slight lift wil ljust ad a little more clearance form my 31's. Is this what could be causing my springs to fan?
