Re: front axle shackle angle question
oh Sorry for misquoting you bobca, my memory isnt what it should be.
the springs are used, all cj rears, im using them front and rear. No wheight on them, its a bare frame not even axles bolted up yet.
I can jysy redrill the holes in my brackets to move the rear hanger back about an inch ( thats all the room I have) I held the spring in place and the angle looks about right.
the top of the shackle is towards the front of the Jeep, the spring eye at the bottom of the shackle is a little farther back from the top of te shackle.
wait, thats baCKwarsds from what Jeepgod said.
one way will hinder compression, one will hinder droop right?
when I put weight on it they will push forwards just like JeepGod says ( I jumped up and down on it, and I could see the direction of travel)
so maybe I shold leave it?
all this work to meagerly re engineer what they had already figured ou with way more resources tan I have, whay do I bother?
thanks for the ideas, please keep them coming I dont fully understand just yet.
