I recently switched out my 74 springs for 76 springs. Changed all of the spring hangers, ect. We took all of the right measurements from three other 76 cj5s. When we finished everything looked perfect, drove perfect, except for one thing. My front shackles did not hang strait down. They are pushed forward to about a 45 degree angle. Is this going to be a problem? will this cause my springs to bend if I get to flexing too much?

Your shackles shouldn't be totally vertical. Also, do you have a winch on the front.

No, not yet. I didn't even think of that. That could further my problems if this even is a problem. I've seen other jeeps with the shackles forward a bit but not to the 45 angle mine is.

I have seen many jeep owners do this on purpose. it lets the spring droop more during articulation. if you like the ride height I wouldnt worry about it. it could be a good thing. other than looking kind of silly.
