Re: Articulation - horrible

The driveshafts were both lengthened.. I guess I need to go the route of getting some good greasable shackles and put lock Nuts on them buy allow some room? What is the easiet way to install them? I used a Hi lift before and jacked the front end up and put a Hydralic under the axle? This was the easiet method I thought? Sound Good? Who makes the best shackles? Thanks

Do one end of each spring pack at a time. As you jack up an end, You will find a spot that has neutral load at the bolt(no up or down pressure). At that position the lower shackle bolt is easily removed,(then remove the upper bolt). Then install the new shackle at the upper bolt, then you will more than likely have to slightly jack the vehichle higher to get the new lower bolt to install into the leaf pack. Then move to the next one, untill all 4 are complete.
