Shakle Question

I recently bought a 2 inch Shakle lift for my 93 YJ. When I was trying to install them I ran into some problems. Once I got both the back Shakles off I figured the leaf spings would drop down, however they both snapped up and hit the frame. The back of the Jeep was raised with two jackstands so there was no weight on the wheels. What else do I have to loosen to get the leaf springs to drop down so I can install the new Shakels?

Thanks

I had the same problem when I put mine on.All I did was take a crow bar and put it on the leaf spring and clamped it on with a c clamp.Then push down and line up the bolt.

Hope this helps.

Trucidus Sum - Not that I need to explain myself to you but I know dang well how many lines a jeep has. The lines are supposed to represent the vent holes. Count those, it's amazing what you will come up with. This is not the place to criticize. It's a place to discuss Jeeps not ascii files. If you don't like it don't look at it. I don't appreciate you your public criticism. If you really feel the urge to say something to people use the private message option.

when i installed mine i just used a bottle jack and a piece of 4x4 to give me a little extra length. It pushes then right down and then you can raise them slowly so they will slide right into your shackles if its a tight fit, mine where. hope this helps.
