make sure everything is torqued properly and not too tight. i usually run shackle bolts around 50 ft/lbs

i had the same problem when i first put on my lift. the springs soften up over time. it also makes a huge difference if you change your frame bushings, or get greasable shackles.

i just put the same kit on yesterday but I want to change the shackles. The ones on there are not stock and I have no idea what kind they are. I had to use washers on each side of the spring eyes because the shackles seem to be to wide. What should I switch to? Or what are you using.

cool ill give that a shot. i just used my 3/8 impact and tightened them all up. also, i have killer flex in the rear, but i am only using about 3 inches of my shock travel up front. i am running the sway bar up front, could that be limiting my travel that much?

Go with the MORE shackles. I hear that they are the best you can go with.

A lot of people go with M.O.R.E. I went with Currie because they are 2 blocks from my house, so i didnt have to pay for shipping. Very satisfied.
