Re: SRS question... I am now confused.
A shackle reversal moves the front shackles to the rear of the spring. I'm sure you already knew that but I figured I'd say to clear things up maybe. Its not needed on the rear axle because the shackles are already in the rear of the spring. Lift from SR varies due to how sagged your springs are, how heavy your front end is, how long your shackles are, etc. If your front end was way above your rear you could put some longer shackles in the rear to compensate if its not too far off. Generally I'd say that an inch front to rear is hardly noticable on CJ's. I'm sure you've done plenty of research into the effects of the SR and one day I look forward to doing it myself to make my CJ-5 more streetable.
