Hey, so my current rear setup is beltech 6400 shackles, 4" skyjacker leafspring, and the stock 1" block which came with the 08 rangers.
I want to try to correct the rear axle location and center it out in the wheel well a bit more... Apparently the 4" leaf has a tendency to push the axle forward a little, in combination with the shackle it is a little worse.
The back end is high enough that I want to play with the idea of either popping the leafs out of the lowest hole in the beltech shackles and trying them in a couple of the different holes (photo below for ref) to see if dropping the back end down a bit could help, or possibly even try the stock shackles and see if it improves that axle without tilting the truck backward.
However, I don't have any experience with leafsprings and I first off wouldn't want to unbolt them and then not be able to get them back in, I don't want to hurt myself by not knowing the mechanics involved, like not knowing if they're under a lot of pressure, how to release the pressure etc etc.
I would love some tips, suggested techniques, warnings etc for disconnecting the leafs from the shackles, and then putting them back on, thanks.
