thats awesome. looks good. i dont have my bars cranked all the way but just enough to the truck looks level and the the rear now looks to short when i stand up to it. its strange. my drivers side tbar bolt is almost all the way in and the pass. side has alot left to go on it. and i think i only got 1" to 1.5" lift on it.

They are listed as drop shackles for GM trucks, but will lift a Ranger.

^^yea i actually just read about that on another thread.


oh ok..my drivers side is close to it. but i dont think it sags. still holds good height and is still farly stiff up front. is this something that normally fails?

i suppose these shackles will help towards the demise of mine with the extra weight being distributed up front and ill get them replaced once i maxed out that drivers side and it sags more. itll start leaning to one side right, cuz i assume the drivers side will prob fail faster or more?
