A theme I've noticed in the posts on shackle reversal is nosedive during braking. Just how bad is the nosedive? And does it depend on the stiffness of the springs?

The nose dive is not major for me. I'd much rather have the smoother ride, better control. I think it has more to do with the shocks. The nose dive is from the shackles rotating and the springs/shocks compressing. I was planning on switching to some sort of adjustable shocks if it nose dived too much. But I don't think it's excessive enough to worry about. The problem is from the factory jeep not nose diving at all. It's just a change. But no more than a normal car.
