no you would get way more flex than two inches. the shckles arent the same width so modifying would be necessary. right now im running double shackles on my setup, but it isnt stock ranger leafs. double shackles give the droop but not the pivoting as in the revolvers. but the problem with getting revolvers is that you probably wouldnt be able to flex em out fully with stock shocks.and the forward rearward shock mount design on the rear axles of our trucks suck. im changing mine quite soon with towers on top on the axle housing.

Just remove it. You don't need it anyway.

I pretty sure he means rear. The rear one you really don't need. The front one I would leave on for daily driving. There's not much flex in the stock front end anyway.

Yeah, I have 2" longer (well a bit longer than that) for about 1" of total extra lift. The revolvers are cool, though. There's a limit to how much I'm going to add to my 2WD though! Not really worth it. But it's a cheap enough lift I went for it -- if only all lifts were about $50 an inch!

john. ill tell you in private what ive done to my rear end suspension to give me more droop than ill probably need. (meaning ill most likely tip over before the rear wheels leave the ground. and although i wasnt patient enough, i could have done it for around 200 dollars.
