Stock shackle length

What is the stock shackle length on a 1991 JY? I was looking for a rattle on mine and the shackles look as if they where changed to longer ones.

The shackle's are 6 inches long. So with the 2 inch body lift that is also on the YJ, what is the total lift?

6" shackles are a 1" lift shackle. So 3" lift roughly. On stock springs, you do not always get the full lift of shackles depending on the spring condition.

yep. lift shacles give you about half the lift of the amount longer the shackle is. dont know if that makes sense but a 5" shackle (1 longer then stock) will give 1/2" of lift. a 6" shackle ( 2 longer then stock) will give 1 inch of lift.
