Re: Shackles bent please help
Surely if you drove home after getting stuck and didn't notice any difference, you could probably just check it over, and maybe jump on it a few times. If it seems to be stable, you can probably wait. Shackle lifts aren't the greatest way for lift, you will get alot of play when cornering and also makes the Jeep hard to control. Shackles are not expensive, and if you have a jack are pretty easy to replace. I would suggest replacing them with a heavy-duty set, and lifting the Jeep with springs.
