Rear shackle bump

I just recently installed a Rusty's 6.5 lift. Now my shackles are hitting in the rear. Has anyone had this problem and how did you fix it?


My Jeep build. :)

Pics would be nice, what are they hitting in the rear and is this when driving or just sitting?

you need a dog-leg, boomerang, or just longer shackle. The same happened to me when I put in new springs from Fat Bobs.
Or relocation brackets

FYI if you dont fix it and load the springs up hard, you will bend the springs
