Installing New Shackles

I got 4, inch and a half lift shackles. I have never installed new shackles before but I know how to do it. Does anybody have any tips on how to install them efficiently? I could probably do it but it might take some time. Thanks.

Re: Installing New Shackles

I used a floor jack on the frame to lift the Jeep up, and a bottle jack between the frame and leaf spring to move the leafs to the proper position. The back might be tricky, I believe the bolt goes from the inside out, so you will need to drop the tank to get em out, or cut them with a sawzall.
