Is it possible to make a home made shackle reverse with outboard mounted springs (because of FSJ axles) by reversing the spring hangers (ie. front hanger on rear and rear on front). Thanks.

I thought about doing this when I moved my front springs outboard of the frame. Yes, it would be relatively easy to do both at the same time. I didn't want to go with a shackle reversal for 2 reasons. First, I have the Currie tow chackles in front and will flat tow the Scrambler if need be. Second, I don't like the idea of a shackle reversal, I know of a few friends that have them, and they hate them. They can do a lot of body damage and have said the only benefit was better on-road handling, which I care little about.
