Anybody out there running the warrior products shackle reverse setup? I'm looking for a way to run rear springs up front without having long shackles hanging out front. Any impressions on how this kit works is helpfull.

Re: Shackle reverse

You won't have shackles hanging out in the front because of the S/R. Or maybe I missunderstood.

Re: Shackle reverse

I have heard that the warrior system is pretty good and you can run the rear springs up front. Other option is if you don't want to run longer shackles is to purchase a missing link shackle. I personally don't like it when they separate going up steep inclines so I welded mine to the front bumper. Not as much travel but I can still ramp over a 1000.

Re: Shackle reverse

he wont have them because of the shackle reverse, he'll have them if he runs rear springs up front without reversing the shackle... hence the need for the reverse

Re: Shackle reverse

Ok, I am looking at the S/R so I can avoid having long shackles up front.
What I need to know is if this kit works well, how my zuk will handle after it is installed, any gotchas to look out for.
Those type of things. I had rear springs up front once, had a real bad death wobble :-) The longer shackles also reduced the approach angle a bit. Just looking for ways to avoid those problems. Was thinking of the CSC wrangler kit, but I think it will take Fred a couple of years to catch up on the orders he already has! :-)

Tell me about it. 9 and 1/2 weeks and still waiting. All I can say is that the kit better be in and installed before Suzuki on the Rocks.

Re: Shackle reverse

Rocky Road's bolt-on rear spring to front kit will allow you to run the rears without sticking out in front. It only costs $55 and makes it easy to use the rears up front.

Re: Shackle reverse

I saw Glenn's (Brown29) kit a couple of weeks ago, and it looked like a pretty straightforward install which allows rear springs up front & not have long shackles sticking out - probably makes a Big difference in ride quality.

I have installed a Warrior S/R kit on a Samurai, and it does Not let you use rear springs up front - that is, not without modifications anyway.

HTH,

Re: Shackle reverse

I can't remember where I got the image, but I dropped a bunch of them on my website at http://members.home.net/marvinmartian/smile

I just link an image there when I want to use one.
