I have the revolver shackles on my 91. They work well if you take care of them. I didn't pay any attention the greasing the joints... and they seized up on me. It took a 2 ton press and a butt load of hammering to get them apart. If you take care of them... they are phenomenal.

x2, i had revolvers when i was sua and they work wonders when set up right. most people shun them that never ran them but they have no idea what they are talking about. if you are sua get them, remove trac and sway bars get extended brake lines, remove your shocks, flex it to get a proper shock measurement and your good to go to order the shocks.

HI,
Been looking at revolvers for years. Question: how do you deal with the parking brake line when at full flex? That seems like a problem to me.

I have a 95 YJ with 4" lift thats also SOA. I was wanting to buy the revolver shackles, But I have one concern. They seem to me that they dont have a lot of lateral support and would seem to break easy when hitting some ruts or something. Anyone have any experience or anything to add??

Another option is save the money on the revolvers and buy a locker.

t'was'nt addressing anyone in particular... just a little sarcastic quip.

I honestly have nothing aginst revolers, but a locker IMO will make up for most loses in traction or flex.

I believe they have their place, but on the other hand, there are certain situations where, IMO, they are not suited the best. this FJs front almost lifted off the ground trying to pull this ledge. revolver fully unloaded. he could have gone over backwards.

he did make it, however... but prolly due to the fact he had the 'easy button' engaged!

Ok, good to know. I've read some reviews and it seems about 50/50 on good and bad opnions and expierence's. But I do agree about having a locker in place of Loss traction due to a lack of flex.

I'm NOT directing this towards anybody inparticular, but whatever way you go, if you get lots of flex, make dang sure that your driveline ujoints are not surpassing their limits.

If you don't, you risk putting them in a bind & eventually grenading them at possibly the worse possible time. I've seen this happen far too many times by folks who overlook the obvious.
