Yj suspension question

i noticed that when i articulate my front springs, as if climbing up a rock, on the spring that the tires goes up, the shackle doesn't kick out, and let the spring stretch out, the shackle bolts aren't that tight, they are newer springs could that be it? or does the front of the jeep just not weight enough to put that much force on them, they are 2" BDS springs, which actaully measured out to 3" when i installed them, ,with a 1 inch shackle lift, the tire goes into the fender, but shouldn't the shackle be abl to go almost all the way out, i haven't checked to see if my shocks bottomeed out but just thinking it could be..... any ideas thanks!

Re: Yj suspension question

Since the measured lift was 1 inch too much, i would loosen every bolt you tightend to make sure you did not get any fake lift. Let the jeep sit with full weight on lossend springs...
