SOA Shackle length....

Pretty sure I'm going to SOA before end of summer, question is what shackles it everyone using.

I have longer than factory now but thinking I should go back to factory height when I go SOA.....just adapt them to be greaseable.

thanks

Re: SOA Shackle length....

major concerns are caster angle on front axle and pinion angle on rear. check these angles before welding spring perches, as shackle length will alter the way the axle sits after perches are permanent.
