Ok so I know the major down falls of lift shackles, well to make a long story short I have a pair of 1.75 lift shackles for the rear of my CJ (3.5 over stock height). Holding them next to my stock shackles they look gigantic. I know I am need of beefier shackles so I was wondering the concensus on these in the rear of my CJ. My jeep is SOA with 2.5 lift springs so I really don't need to go up any higher but I was wondering should I try to sell these and get stock or closer to stock height or not worry about it. I was just curious about peoples view on shackles in the rear. Up front I already have beefy stock or very close to it shackles.

Re: LIft Shackles - in the rear
Have you considered you might have a nice rake towards the front? I'd say sell them and get some stock or slightly taller shackles. If you're going to put the lift shackles in the rear, atleast do yourself a favor and get lift shackles for the front.
I thought about it but they have a cross brace which is pretty big so I don't think there is enough room. I think these are Currie pieces. They are definately beefy. I could maybe come back 1/2" each side though, although the metal seems pretty tough.
