Re: Drop Link Shakle

If you are talking the Breeze drop link shackle, the answer is no. I have not seen this on the company truck nor have I heard or seen any customer trucks exhibit this. I guess if you had really bad spring wrap it could try to unload it a bit, but I doubt it as you are transferring the weight to the rear of the spring eye pressing down on the DLS trying to force it closed further.

Re: Drop Link Shakle

I was getting ready to post a question about these myself. I have been reading, and a few dealers mention that the onroad stability is something to adjust to, and others warn that it isnt for a daily driver. What should I expect onroad? I am new to wheeling, but not new to suspension movements, and the balance of the two.

Re: Drop Link Shakle

I run a 4.5 spoa and the 5 inch breeze dls with 32x11.5 BFG's. On the trail I have had no unfolding while going upgrade. I have a lead foot on the trail too. On the street is a different story. I did notice that they smoothed out the sharp bumps, but I run them somewhat "loose" and NEVER drive it on the highway. Most my speeds are 30 to 45 mph. I do go SLOW around the corners. As with any mods I do to mine, I test it on the trail to get the "feel" so I know the limits for the street. I would rather roll it on the trail where only myself is at risk, and experienced help is there, than the street where others can be harmed and PANIC comes so easy. (and law suits) So far I have had no problems. Hope this helps ya out.
