Who's running a RC 4" lift with lift shackles

I have had this Rc 4" kit for a couple years now and was going to install some 1" lift shackles I made at work. But seems the shocks are too short

Anyone else have this problem?

Doesn't seem like my jeep weighs the shocks or springs down at all, when I lift
the Jeep by the front bumper there is no droop heh.


If it's not supposed to move and does use duct tape.

My Jeep came with a 4" SkyJacker (I think thats what it is based on the shocks anyway) and it rides pretty stiff too....

put your jeep on the ground.. loosen the shackle bolts and retighten them to 35 foot pounds. Be sure to use a lock nut
