Small side up in the front and small side down in the rear. The pics of the crossmember being cleared by the shackles with mil wrap springs is the sole purpose for this in the rear. The front will prevent inversion.
I run the MOREs, excellent product. But a shackle is a shackle if its cut out of the same steel. As I understand it, the ones being made by board members are laser cut using the appropriate steel and I have not heard of a single complaint. You can pay more if you want to.
Your limited slip differential sucks.
The difference between the two is the hardware kit. Some say that greasable bolts and steel busboys are worth the cost while others may argue that it doesn't get lubed even with the new hardware. The tension has to be perfect against the included steel bushings for the grease to not leak out the sides. Personally, with all the talk about loosening the bolts for correct articulation, the grease just shoots out the sides of the steel bushing without ever greasing the urethane in the first place. It's a great concept bit I have yet to see it implemented correctly on a working suspension. The movement should be between steel bushing and urethane bushing and if you can get that to work, then go for the more or daystar kit. If not, contact Travis (VACJ5) or Eddie (BESRK) and grab a set of plates and a can of antisieze and go to town. I just picked up yet another set from Eddie yesterday from the post office for another buddy of mine. I should be getting a set free if I order two more at this rate!
Random boomerang shackle story.......while in my local 4wd store, i asked if they happen to have any boomerang shackles for my yj in stock. One guy laughs and says he hasn't heard that term in years(?) & that they are called revolver shackles . I immediately tune him out and continue my conversation with the other guy that at least seems to know what i'm talking about. He looks in the book for a bit then says "they don't make those for the front only the rear, if it were me I'd go with the shackle reversal kit." At that i slowly backed away from the counter and ran for my life.
I threw that out there just to reiterate that buying the ones from the forum members is the way to go.

[QUOTE=Opihi59;14523519]Welcome to the forum.
If you are a mechanical neophyte and have to repetitively intone the mantra of "lefty loosey," are a mouth breather and only own a hammer, it will be more of a challenge. [/QUOTE]
The shackle is not nearly as important as having properly matched spacer tubes and bushings. Too long or too short leads to all sorts of problems.
This is true, binds everything and is like having no suspension.
I found this out while I was disassembling my entire Jeep. Lesson learned.
[COLOR="Green"]You may not like guns, and choose not to own one. That is your right. You may not believe in God. That is your choice. However, if someone breaks into your home the first two things you are going to do are: 1) Call someone with a gun. 2) Pray to God they get there in time.
