Shackle lift Help

vehicle 1988 SuzukiSamurai

I live in Ontario, Canada and am having a hard time finding a shackle kit. I am looking to go between one and two inches just enough to squeeze 235/75/15 tires in on a completely stock system. Any ideas? Is there one that is better than the other?

Re: Shackle lift Help

Have access to some shop tools, mainly a drill press? Shackles are pretty easy to make. If you don't have access to these tools, you should.

You could join a club or an e-mail list or you could start a club or e-mail list. I'm a member of one club and two local 4x4 e-mail lists (one I just started myself). Being a part of these groups, I get help with parts, tools, and a helping hand when I need it. I of course recepocate with what tools and time I have to help others.

If your not off-roading you don't need the lift. My (mild tread) 235s only rubbed a little at full compression. After removing the sway-bar things didn't change much. Then I removed the bumpstops and it now rubs like crazy at full compression, but that's fine by me.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Ive got 1 1/4" longer Con-Ferr shackles on mine. They give you more than enough clearance to fit 235's in there.
You can get them from Rocky-Road Outfitter or Con-ferr
