Re: Thinking of doing a shackle reverse
I've done a shackle reversal on my CJ, and it seems to have issues with LIFT springs. I'm running SKYJACKER'S 4" lift, and the caster is WAY out. I've got a temp. fix, but I'll eventually have to cut the axle and rotate the pinion and perches. I'm not sure if you are running the lift springs or not, but it's something to look into.
I love the ride of the reversal on a daily basis. I can almost sleep behind the wheel. I have wheeled it, but only in mud/dirt.
The problem with rock crawling is you supposedly loose all of your traction when approaching an obsticle. The jeep GIVES, instead of PUSHING up over it.
