My vote is for Jey's idea. I'm pretty sure he had it pinned for street use and removed the pin for offroad.

I've actually run the Z-boxes and revolver's on two different Jeeps, I didn't run into any problems with either but each one handled differently, but if I had to do it again, it would be the revolvers ... If I didn't go coils...

If I was gonna run any of those, it'd be the Teraflex shackles.
