Re: Shackle Reverse
Here is my opinion on this topic..........
I put on a Trailmaster "bolt on" reverse shackle kit on my 77 CJ. I like it very much.
I did have some nose dive under heavy breaking, but with the right shocks, that was illiminated. Running 5012's all around. Had to put on some shock towers in the front from a 83 wagoneer to hold the front shocks.
I am fighting some fender mashing problems now, but plan on drilling new holes in the perches to gain about another inch in clearance.
Over all, I have been impressed with the shackle reversal. Rides smooth and no major safety issues.
