Shackles - anyone use these from Crown? says 3/4" lift

Part# 52040415KHD
http://www.jeep4x4center.com/heavy-d...0415khd-2.html

All of the descriptions have no measurements, but a few say 3/4" lift. Has anyone used these and verify the eye to eye measurement? should be 5.5".


************************************************** *********
I'm looking to reduce some lift because my 2.5" springs gave me 4" and after 9mo they haven't "settled" any lower. Current shackles are 1.25" lift.

Running 31's and plan to go to 33's in 6mo and dont really want to run 35's.

so 6.25" looks like kinda much for 33's I think let alone 31's. Plus I wont mind gaining some caster back.

If you could that would be super-duper-ooper awesome. Should be 5.5" bolt center to bolt center, 5" would be cool too, just prefer knowing what I'm buying prior.

first, Thanks!! Looks like I will order.

I do remember reading that thread, but i dont think I stayed with it on the updates. Just wanted to make sure it wasn't a 1" lift, cause $55 (Shipped for 4) for a .25" drop wasnt worth it, but for the .5" drop I'll get I'll give it a whirl.

And thanks again man!

My plan is to upgrade to the Ground Pounder Fab BOOMERANG SHACKLES. I got the crowns for the bolts n bushings.http://www.ebay.com/itm/JEEP-YJ-BOOM...30882325185%26

Yeah, these will open up that option cause my current ones are one piece and not greaseable. Good plan man.

There's hardly any angle to those shackles. What would be the advantage? Just get some from ground pounder and call it good. He will make any length you want. Just PM him here. Name is Besrk.

Not necessarily looking for booms, mainly a reduction in lift and new frame bushings with greaseable bolts, is a bonus.

Greasable bolts are going to do jack squat for you. Might as well just get daystar bushings for the frame and save some cash.

55 covers all 4 corners, exact same as besrk. I also get bushings and bolts. My spring bushings are good, frame bushings questionable/need checked. Wins all across my board.
