Are my shackles flipped?
I know this sounds stupid but I just bought a 2004 Ranger XL 2wd and it is built to look like a prerunner so the rear of the truck sits lower than the front. Now the PO took out all but the 2 longest leafs in the rear springs but my rear shackles are also swinging above the mounting brackets? Is this how they are from the factory? Or did the PO flip them like this to get the rear end lower?
Right now the rear of the truck sits so the rear bump stops have about 1" to 1.5" between them and the axle. I've read alot on here about people using the Belltech shackles to lift the rear of their trucks and if I were to do that how it sits now it would actually lower it.
I want to lift the rear back up so it isn't so low and isn't bumping off the bumpstops all the time and if the shackles are able to be flipped over I will do that instead of swapping the springs right away.
Just curious as to how the rear shackles are positioned from the factory. Any pics will help also!
